The Borough of Twickenham Local History Society focuses on the history of Twickenham, Whitton, Teddington and the Hamptons which in 1965 was incorporated into the newly established London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. A brief history of each area can be found under the ‘History’ tab.
The Society is one of the most prolific publishers of local historical research papers; please use the ‘Publications’ tab to see details of our publications and how to buy them.
Our Programme of Talks set out below attracts some of the finest speakers in the land.
