About Richmond:
St. Margarets


A suburban village that is often associated with Twickenham, and is the home of Twickenham Film Studios, which is located at the villages centre. It was formed in 1912, having replaced an ice-rink, and is one of the oldest and important studios for production and post-production in the UK used by the world over.

Modern St. Margarets dates back to when the railway was introduced; it still retains its tree-lined roads and there are a number of Victorian houses that survive to this day, among them is Solus Lodge, which was built by the famous painter J. M. W. Turner and is now known as Sandycoombe Lodge. The Kilmorey Mausoleum is another point of interest, located near the border with Isleworth.

With Twickenham at the villages doorstep and good transport links, St. Margarets is in easy and convenient reach to the rest of the Borough.
