East Sheen and its own land
East Sheen and its own land
In the 13th century, the Richmond area used to be called Sheen or Shene, and East Sheen was the designated area east of Richmond – hence the name. But why is there no ‘West Sheen’? When Henry VII built the Richmond Palace, Sheen became known as Richmond, and East Sheen got left on its own – a nice reminder of ancient times. Nowadays, East Sheen is part of the Mortlake district and its borders are difficult to define. East Sheen is broadly the area south of the Upper Richmond Road, but opinions differ as to where Mortlake starts and where East Sheen ends. But never mind that – more about the properties and the wonderful amenities!

Pubs, restaurants and retail therapy
East Sheen is known for having some of the best bars and restaurants in West London, as well as independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Londoners are known to flock here for a taste of village-in-the-city life alongside a few drinks and a wholesome meal. The Hare & Hounds has a popular beer garden that becomes very popular on warm summer evenings, and local pubs The Victoria and The Plough both offer great food and a convivial atmosphere. The High Street features a pleasant mix of cafés and bars of both the chain and the independent variety. The same applies to the local retailers, meaning that there’s something for everyone – young families and single professionals alike. Sandrine Chocolates is a must for all cocoa aficionados, and there are a surprising number of cycle shops for city commuters with a distaste for the underground.
The Royal Park
Richmond Park, the largest of all London’s Royal Parks, dominates the local landscape and offers residents of East Sheen superlative views over the city. Brimming with parkland and woodland gardens, it has been designated a National Nature Reserve and contains the stunning Pen Ponds and Isabella Plantation. The park is famous for its attractive (and often rare) wildlife, with populations of Fallow and Red deer wandering freely and bringing a certain fairy-tale charm to the park. Yes, it goes without saying, but this makes it a perfect destination for leisurely weekend rambles and summer picnics.
Sporting clubs and activities
The Thames and East Sheen’s surrounding green spaces play host to a variety of sporting venues and community clubs. Richmond Park is home to The Royal Ballet School’s ‘White Lodge’, whilst Palewell Common hosts the Sheen Lions Football Club and Kids Works, with the latter running a variety of sports projects and events for local children throughout the year. Sheen Lawn Tennis and Squash club and The Roehampton Club also offer top-notch sporting facilities in Roehampton, where you will also find the Bank of England Club and the headquarters of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). The area caters for most sporting interests, from golf and fishing to rowing and weekend fitness ‘boot camps’.
