Date posted: Monday 20th March 2017
Teddington has been named as one of the best places to live in London in a top ten to be published in the Sunday Times, reports the Twickenham Tribune.
On hearing the news, Sheen Harold of the Teddington Society was thrilled that Teddington is on the list: “Wow, that’s brilliant. Of course I think Teddington’s the BEST place to live since I live here! It has everything. We’re tucked between the River with the famous Lock and Bushy Park with all the wildlife and activities. Our shopping High Street is full of specialised independents and we have several surrounding streets with everything a household could need. Lots of good schools and a vibrant community. What more could you want?”
Ten London locations have been named among the Best Places to Live in Britain by The Sunday Times. The accolade comes in part two of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, which is published on Sunday March 19. The supplements assess a wide range of factors, from jobs, exam results and broadband speed to culture, community spirit and local shops in order to compile the definitive top locations to make your home.
The methodology relies on hard data and robust statistics on crime and education, but also on expert knowledge from The Sunday Times judging panel. The judges combine the numbers with their own experience of the villages, towns and cities, such as local pubs, ease of transport and the range of attractive property to ensure the chosen locations truly are places where readers and their families can thrive.
