Roads of Richmond - Cambridge Park

Updated: May 11, 2020


Houses on Cambridge Park, Marble Hill Park & Cambridge Park Bowls Club

Leafy Cambridge Park is nestled between the centre of Richmond and Twickenham just over the bridge in East Twickenham. The majority of the tree lined road surrounds a small park which houses the Cambridge Park Bowls Club and the Richmond Bridge Club. The later is the most popular and successful EBU affiliated club in the country and has been the No.1 club in the country for nine consecutive years - they’re hoping to create some sort of record. The club is housed in the old Bowling Club Pavilion which has recently been refurbished and is now probably one of the finest in Surrey and can accommodate 36-37 tables.


The majority of the properties surrounding the bowling green are grand white stucco Victorian semi-detached houses with high ceilings, raised ground floors, deep front gardens as well as reasonably sized back gardens. The majority have been converted into flats. There are also a number of modern apartment blocks and larger detached Victorian houses on the other side, some of which have also been turned into apartments. The part of Cambridge Park that runs down to the river also has a number of more contemporary 1930s, 1960s and 1970s houses, many with good sized front and back gardens and off-street parking. Further down the road, purpose built blocks of flats with extensive communal gardens run down to the Thames tow path.


Average Terrace House Price: £912,000.00 (April 2020)

Average Flat Price: £563,000.00 (April 2020)


Local Knowledge & Neighbourhood Haunts:

Cambridge Park is only a few minutes walk to Marble Hill Park with Marble Hill House, a popular adventure playground, One O’Clock Club, football pitches and cricket nets as well as beautifully maintained lawns running right down to the river where summer open-air concerts take place. The popular Rising Sun is a minute away and The Crown pub with lovely beer garden is the other end of Marble Hill Park.


St. Margarets village, the train station and lovely assortment of independent cafes (local institutions Sunshine & Ravioli and Zorans) and shops (Gabi di Rocha Interiors and Streets Florist & Greengrocers) to name but a few is within a five minute walk as is East Twickenham High Street with the fantastic independent restaurants Tangawizi and A Cena. This local high street has many other useful shops including the Aladdin’s Cave of electrics Orbit Electronics, you can hardly squeeze thro’ the front door but the owner can always locate exactly what you’re searching for.


School catchments are also great with the Oftsed rated outstanding senior schools - Orleans Park within a five minute walk and Waldegrave School for girls (co-ed sixth-form) a ten minute bus ride away. Primary school catchments are also fantastic with Orleans Primary, St Marys Primary and also Deer Park School which is due to be relocating to its new premises just by Richmond Bridge later this year.


What The Neighbours Say:

Cambridge Park is one of the most attractive roads in this area. The local architecture including St Stephens Church accounts for the amount of filming that takes place here - Granchester, Endeavour, Fleabag etc. It has Richmond on the doorstep with the centre of London 20 minutes away, but there is an airier feel with Marble Hill Park at the end of the road. It has an eclectic caring community with a respect for privacy. The local bowls and bridge club create a pleasant atmosphere. Many great local state schools nearby!” Jane
