Teddington stations lies in the London borough of Richmond upon Thames in southwest London, within Travelcard Zone 6. The station sits on the Kingston Loop Line, with South West Trains services running both ways to London Waterloo – via Kingston upon Thames and Wimbledon one way, and Richmond and Putney the other. The station was granted Grade II-listed status in 2012, one year before its 150th anniversary.
Teddington stretches inland from the River Thames to the picturesque surroundings of Bushy Park, with a long high street leading down to a host of pubs, restaurants, shops and art galleries. Teddington Lock, within the town, is the first lock on the River Thames – or the last, depending on which way you’re travelling – and is home to the RNLI’s only volunteer station on the river. The area around the station itself is largely residential and its two nearby pubs – The Railway and The Adelaide – are very popular with commuters during peak times.
