    Local information

    • Walton on Thames is located on the south side of the River Thames, with a most impressive landmark – a stunning road bridge that spans the Thames between Walton and Shepperton. The current bridge is the 6th to be built here since 1750. The town began as a small Celtic settlement. It is recorded in the Doomsday book as Waletona, or ‘Welsh Town'. The name has evolved over time to become Walton on Thames.
    • The river access makes this town a perfect place to live if you have a love of the outdoors. There is ample opportunity for activities such as walking, cycling, running and the plethora of watersports that are available. There are also clubs for tennis, rugby, football, dance, theatre and much more.
    • During the 1st World War, Walton on Thames provided medical treatment for Soldiers from New Zealand. There is still a Kowhai tree, native to New Zealand, planted opposite the New Zealand Avenue entrance to The Heart and bearing a memorial plaque.
    • During the 1920's the area became known for its passion for film and boasted several studios, including the Cecil Hepworth Studio, which was converted to a theatre by the original architect when the studio closed. In World War II, the town was heavily bombed, due to its close proximity to Brooklands where planes and other war materials were manufactured.
    • After the 2nd World War, the town began to re-develop, the film studios made a comeback and many films were made out of studios such as the Nettlefold and Walton Studios.
    • The area also had a passion for racing and in the 1940's and 50's HWM (Hersham and Walton Motors) built racing cars including Formula 1 cars driven by legends including Stirling Moss. HWM is still very much part of the town and after winding up the racing car business, took a franchise in iconic Aston Martin cars.
    • Today, the town is served by several primary schools, both private and public sector and a large Secondary School, The Three Rivers Academy, and another one planned to open in September 2021 serving the other side of town, which will be part of the Heathside Academy. Walton on Thames is also within easy access of several private secondary schools, nurseries and 6th form colleges.
    • Walton on Thames regularly hosts Farmers Markets, French Markets and Vegan Markets, offering a delightful range of specialist food stalls and products. There are a range of shops, including an M&S Food Hall and a new Aldi and several restaurants, pubs and cafés. In keeping with its movie-making history, Walton on Thames has an Everyman Cinema. There is also the Cecil Hepworth Theatre which hosts several theatre productions a year and a modern, well equipped leisure centre and swimming pool. Together with local art galleries, museums, historic houses and gardens nearby, there is never a shortage of things to do.
    • The town is between junctions 10 and 11 of the M25 and is on a fast train line into London Waterloo. Journey time from 30 minutes.
    • Please note distances and times are approximate.
