Whitton is a largely suburban area in the northwest corner of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
It’s good transport links – a railway station with a direct link to London Waterloo; good access to the M3 motorway – mean that it is an obvious choice for commuters and their families who want quick access into central London or westwards to the Thames Valley and south to the coast.
The town centre has recently undergone considerable regeneration which has seen £2 million spent on new street lighting and yorkstone pavements and £5 million on a redevelopment of the railway station. Whitton high street offers the usual mix of high street chains, independents, coffee shops, eateries and public houses.
For those hungry for culture, however, look no further than Kneller Hall, the Royal Military School of Music (RMSM) and Twickenham Museum in which visitors can take a virtual walk through Whitton’s history, starting right back in 1200. Talking of walking, not far from Whitton are the large open spaces of Bushy Park and Hampton Court Palace, Syon Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and Richmond Park.
Whether you are a resident or a business owner in Whitton or even an artisan food producer looking to secure a pitch at the nearby farmers’ market in Twickenham (one of London’s longest running!), the chances are, at some point, you are going to need to hire a van. Food producers should take particular note that we have a range of chiller, freezer or even dual chiler/freezer vans that will ensure that your produce arrives at the market in the best condition possible.
Whatever your self-drive van needs, we are confident we have the right vehicle for you – short, medium or long base, low or medium roof, with or without a tail-lift, with or without a garment rail, specialist chiller or freezer compartments. If you’re not sure what type of vehicle you need, we are very happy to run through all the various options and sizes available to ensure you are matched with the best vehicle for you and your job.
