Tagg’s Island and much of the riverside in Hampton became known as the Thames Riviera from the 1920s.

Called the Karsino, World War I impacted business as well as rival hotels in the area, and the hotel was demolished in 1971. Although the area is still referred to as The Thames Riviera by some, from the 2010s is has been called St Albans Riverside.
