Outside of the classroom there are plenty of options to keep the kids entertained from the local tennis courts and football pitches to the playgrounds, skate park and recreation grounds.
Twyford is often referred to as a suburb of London due to its direct train connection in to Paddington and the arrival of Crossrail which will take you direct from Twyford Station through the heart of London, the City and out to East London. It is also well served by being so close to the M4 and you can be at Heathrow in about 30 minutes by car.
Cycling in Twyford has boomed in part due to the Cycle Chilterns project which created a cycling guide to Twyford and the surrounding area which boast some of the most stunning scenery and challenging climbs around. You can download a comprehensive guide from the Cycle Chilterns website.
