When it comes to being a great place to work, Twickenham ticks all the boxes
Loving where you work is a vital element of your work-life balance. With its unique riverside location and abundant green spaces, Twickenham is a clean and safe place of work that offers the perfect balance.
Commuting is easy as the transport links in all directions are well connected and fast. Before the day has even started, grab an early breakfast on the way to the office. Whether it’s an almond croissant, smashed avocado on sourdough or fried eggs sunny side up, there’s a variety of cafés dotted around the town. For your mid-morning coffee fix, try a new café each day and discover which serves your double espresso or mocha cappuccino exactly as you like it. Search cafés on our Business Directory for ideas on where to try next.
Twickenham’s cafés are usually buzzing throughout the day but, if you need space for a relaxed business meeting, it’s always possible to find a quiet corner. For a team building activity, follow our fun Quiz Trail to discover all sorts of fascinating facts as you explore the town.
With quick lunch options aplenty, take your pick from burritos, ciabattas, folded pizzas and classic sandwiches or book a table at one of the many restaurants or pubs. For those that like a lunchtime workout, there’s state-of-the-art gyms as well as drop-in yoga and pilates classes.
If time is on your side and you don’t have to rush back to the office, a stroll along the riverside is always a pleasure and provides the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of the working day. For some retail therapy, take a wander along cobbled Church Street and explore the quirky independent stores selling jewellery, gifts, crystals, flowers, homeware, vintage clothing and vinyl records. For culture and art, there’s The Exchange theatre, The Twickenham Museum and Orleans House Gallery and, for music aficionados, Eel Pie Island Museum is a must.
Once the last email of the afternoon has been sent and you’ve officially clocked off for the day, it’s time for a well-earned drink with colleagues either in the centre of town or down by the river. Twickenham has a vibrant music scene and live bands are often playing in the bars and pubs. When the hunger pangs hit, there’s a choice of Italian, Indian, Greek, Thai or Japanese restaurants as well as pubs serving both gastro cuisine and traditional pub grub.
And it doesn’t stop there – a diverse programme of evening, weekend and holiday events runs throughout the year including the ever-popular High Tide music festival and new Taste of Twickenham food festival. Bring your family and friends and enjoy being a part of Twickenham every day of the week.
