Roads of Richmond - Morley Road


Morley Road, East Twickenham, Victorian houses, Deer Park School

Just over the bridge in East Twickenham, MORLEY ROAD is a one-way road running from Denton Road to Richmond Road. The majority of houses are solid Victorian semi-detached three and four bedroom houses although there a small number of Edwardian houses at one end. A few thou’ not many have been converted into flats. Although a few houses have off-street parking, the majority still have their pretty front gardens bursting with bushes, flowers and window boxes, which together with the many trees lining the road, keep the whole road very green and pleasant. At the far end by Denton Road there’s an enclave of gorgeous clapboard houses reminiscent of Martha’s Vineyard, very different to the Victorian houses but somehow it just works.


The strong community has endeavoured to keep the road in keeping with its Victorian architecture. Recently the residents paid a small sum each to ensure all the lampposts that were due to be substituted with modern ones were instead replaced with heritage ones.

Local Knowledge & Neighbourhood Haunts:

Morley Road is at the heart of East Twickenham, a stone’s throw from the Thames tow path and Cambridge Park Gardens with a children’s playground, cafe and tennis courts. The row of shops on Richmond Road include some lovely independent cafes (Manoo & Rita), restaurants (A Cena) and boutiques (Rock & Fairy) plus a good selection of handy convenience stores, children’s dentist, pharmacy and florist. Marble Hill Park is a five minute walk as is St Margarets with its abundance of independent shops (Holly & Co, The Secret Wardrobe, Gaia Wholefoods and Vintage & Velvet) and restaurants (Ristorante Del Posto and Le Salon Prive).


If you’re looking for a road with great school catchments, this could be it. The new Ofsted rated oustanding Deer Park School is relocating to its new premises above Lidl on the Richmond Road later this year. This should certainly bump up the house prices! Morley is also in the catchment for two of the best state senior schools in the borough, co-ed Orleans Park just passed Marble Hill Park and Waldegrave School in Twickenham (girls senior, co-ed sixth form). Both rated outstanding by Ofsted.


Average House Price: £1,400,000.00 (April 2020)

Average Flat Price: £765,000.00 (April 2020)


What the Neighbours Say:

We love living on Morley Road - it’s really friendly with a great bunch of neighbours. Being so close to the river is a highlight, whether it’s dropping down to the tow path for a walk or a run or getting to cross the river twice a day on our way to and from work. We’re also lucky to have an eclectic range of independent stores on our doorstep such as Charles Harry Pharmacy, Richmond Cycles, the Real Ale Shop and Just Good Frames.” Tanya


“Morley Road has the unique combination of being close to the river whilst being only a short walk to Richmond town centre in one direction and the tranquility of Marble Hill Park in the other. From a children’s perspective it also has great secondary school options”. Julian
