Teddington lock/weir is tidal limit but environment agency licence is still needed for 100 yards or so below the lock so if you are in close vicinity of lock/weir, the lock keeper could nab you if you don't have a license.

Looks a bit grotty, but slip at Putney looks a good place to launch. Was going to try it few weeks back but my 9 year old bottled it as I was going to head towards London and tide wasn't suitable for heading towards the shallows of Richmond.

There is a lot of information about the Thames have a look at:
Information for boaters on the River Thames - River Thames
and Environment Agency - Boating on the River Thames

I have launched at Putney. Careful where you leave your car unless you'll be back before high tide - the road does get flooded. Some of the rowers give you a bit of aggro others can be very helpful.
