The Dittons

Thames Ditton and Long Ditton sit between Esher and Surbiton on the River Thames in the borough of Elmbridge. Thames Ditton has a large inhabited island on the river but is otherwise on the southern bank, located just over 12 miles from central London. The heart of Thames Ditton village is the high street and shopping area surrounded by residential, schools and sports areas. Its riverside is situated opposite the Thames Path and Hampton Court Palace Gardens and golf course in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

Thames Ditton joins Long Ditton and Weston Green in occupying the land between Surbiton, Esher and East Molesey.
