The wealthy were drawn from grimy London to Twickenham's Thames waterfront in the 16th to 18th centuries, and many grand houses were built along the river as country retreats. The area retained its attraction as a leisure destination, as angling and rowing became popular on the Thames in later centuries and Twickenham became synonymous with another sporting pursuit: rugby union.
