History

St Margarets takes its name from the former St Margaret's House. It was the country house of Lord Cassilis, Marquis of Ailsa, and later belonged to the Earl of Kilmorey. Their names can be found in local street names, including Kilmorey Gardens and Ailsa Road.

Many Victorian architecture houses remain in St Margarets. In 1854 the St Margaret's Estate was laid out for building family houses, becoming one of the first garden suburbs.

Modern St Margarets dates from the arrival of the railway. There are some tree-lined residential roads and a range of shops and cafés. Twickenham Studios are in the middle of the area. Between St Margarets Road and the railway line (to the east of the "village") is a residential estate, "Twickenham Park".

The St Margarets Fair is held each July in the principal public space, Moormead Park by the River Crane.
