Twickenham : Michelin's recommendations
The name of this town is familiar to sports fans because of its famous rugby league stadium. The place is also associated with the French d'Orléans family: the future French king Louis-Philippe lived here from 1800 to 1807, from 1815 to 1817, and again in 1848 after his abdication. His family and followers occupied several residences here, three of which still remain.
