The upper reaches of the Thames River were once the playground of the rich and landed who built large elegant riverside houses. Of course the grandest and earliest of these is Hampton Court Palace, but there are many smaller houses.

Ham House in Ham, Strawberry Hill House, Marble Hill House, and the painter JMW Turner’s modest hideaway are all in Twickenham, and Syon Park in Chiswick, and the list goes on. Many of these are open to the public through such organizations as English Heritage but others have become working buildings.
