The former lead guitarist of Genesis Steve Hackett settled down in one of the quieter parts of London.

The musician moved to the area on the outskirts of London nearly 10 years ago.

Teddington is a relatively sleepy part of London located near Kingston upon Thames and Richmond.

Residents and visitors can enjoy a peaceful walk down the River Thames or go for a stoll in its green outdoor space.

"This is a very picturesque place to be and we did a walk by the Thames into Richmond."

Another added: "Wonderful nature and views on a riverside walk to Teddington Lock.

"Interesting waterworks at the lock, lock keeper's house and impressive barrage and footbridge over the Thames."

One more continued: "Nice experience while watching how the Lock works in front of you, how the water gradually goes down or up for the boat to pass the river."
