Thames Ditton is a suburban village by and on the River Thames, on the edge of southwest London, and in the Elmbridge borough of Surrey, England. It has a large inhabited island in the river but is otherwise on the southern bank, its centre located 12.2 miles (19.6 km) south-west of Charing Cross in central London. Its clustered village centre and shopping area on a winding High Street is surrounded by housing, schools and sports areas. Its riverside is situated opposite the Thames Path and Hampton Court Palace Gardens and golf course in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Its most commercial area is spread throughout its conservation area and contains restaurants, cafés, shops and businesses. The village is located within the Greater London Urban Area, as defined by the Office for National Statistics.
Its railway station is one of two on the Hampton Court Branch Line and is 500m from riverside end of the village centre and the village of Weston Green that hived off from it in 1939. The two other breakaway villages are Claygate and Hinchley Wood and today the only named sub-locality or neighbourhood irrefutably in the village is Giggs Hill, which is on the road which used to be the main Portsmouth Road from London, but is a local route, bypassed by long-haul traffic by the A3 to the south and east of Claygate.
Thames Ditton joins Long Ditton and Weston Green in occupying the land between Surbiton, Esher and East Molesey. Although reduced to less than one square mile, it formerly covered more than four square miles.
