London Borough of Richmond upon Thames

London Borough of Richmond upon Thames includes Richmond, Kew, Barnes, Ham, East Sheen, Teddington, Whitton, St Margarets, Strawberry Hill, Mortlake, Petersham, Twickenham, Hampton Hill and Hampton. We think it's the greatest community in Greater London - perhaps in the whole of England, and it's becoming more and more green with significant recycling

Richmond upon Thames was named so in 1963 despite Twickenham having twice the population of the town of Richmond and also being the home of the Borough Council offices.  The town of Richmond is known as Richmond Surrey (or Richmond in Surrey).
