So my dad grew up in Teddinton, and finally decided to google it. It’s less than an hour from pretty much anything you want. 46 minutes from Gatwick, 32 from Slough, 28 from Woking, 29 from the London city centre by train, 22 from Heathrow, also 22 from Earl’s Court, and only 9 minutes from Twickenham stadium. It’s even only an hour and a half from the seaside at Bournemouth. Neat.
