The historic village of Shepperton dates back as early as 959 AD as Scepertune, meaning Shepherd’s farm and then recorded as Scepertone in the Domesday Book of 1086. The River Thames was of huge importance for transport to London’s markets from the late 13th century and the village was wholly agricultural until the 19th century when the Thames Valley Railway was built in 1864.
Today, Shepperton has grown to be a thriving and well situated destination of choice for buyers and tenants as we are situated 15 miles southwest of Charing Cross, London and 6 miles of London Heathrow Airport, which brings fantastic transport links from south western railway and M25/M3 motorways. Due to our location and connections, this has brought endless employment opportunities to the area where we have some of the world’s most recognisable companies located close by.
Extensive leisure facilities are in close proximity, which include: Kempton, Sandown and Windsor racecourses, several golf clubs including the world-famous Wentworth Club and Twickenham Stadium. Of course, the River Thames provides many clubs for various water sports and annual regattas.
Shepperton is also a big attraction for families that want to benefit from the exceptional schooling from infant to 18 years of age. There is a great selection of state and public schools.
We couldn’t comment on Shepperton without the mention of Shepperton Studios. You may bump into a Marvel Superhero, Jedi Master, Harry Potter or even Batman.
