Situated just north of Hampton Court Palace, Bushy Park is one of several vast open spaces that sprawl across the borough of Richmond-upon-Thames. Named after the large number of hawthorn bushes that grow within its boundaries, the area now known as Bushy Park has been a settled site since the Bronze Age. Later enclosed by Henry VIII as a hunting ground, Bushy Park is still home to herds of both red and fallow deer. The park is also famed for its Christopher Wren-designed Chestnut Avenue, where locals gather annually on Chestnut Sunday in May for a festival to celebrate the blooming of the trees. There's a children's playground and café on-site.

Great place for a Sunday stroll, especially in autumn with the leaves beginning to fall and lots of herds of deer wandering about. I'd recommend finishing Hampton Court side and enjoying a Sunday roast at The Mute Swan (be sure to book).
