Richmond-upon-Thames is steeped in history, stately homes and beautiful parks all of which make it a great place to visit. But alongside the more traditional attractions, our borough is also sitting on a wealth of significant musical heritage. Global superstars such as the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton and many more started out on their path to fame right on our doorsteps.
The Eel Pie Island Museum team want to bring the history to life, to create a place where people can come and learn about everything this little island in the centre of Twickenham has to offer in the way of musical and river-related heritage.Following the success of the Eelpiland exhibition at the Stables Gallery in 2013 and the pop-up Museum over the summer of 2015, we are delighted to announce that the Eel Pie Island Museum has now found a more permanent venue right in the centre of Twickenham. The Museum will be opening its doors towards the end of March 2017 at 1-3 Richmond Road (opposite the Civic Centre, next to the Shell garage). More details will be available nearer the time!
