Part of the Totally Richmond website, this page is dedicated to all things Teddington. 

Teddington is an affluent area within the Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Its name derives from an Old English tribal leader, and it was known in Saxon and Norman times as Todyngton and Tutington. The name does not derive from 'Tide's End Town', as claimed by Rudyard Kipling among others. The "ton" ending simply means settlement.

There's a good selection of stores on the high street; including major chains such as Marks and Spencers and a myriad of great boutique shops, restaurants and cafes
