Richmond Park is the largest of the Royal Parks, occupying some 2,500 acres. There are hundreds of red and fallow deer roaming free across it, presumably much happier without having to listen out for the 'View halloo!' of one of Henry VIII's hunting parties. Within the park's bounds are the Palladian splendour of White Lodge and Pembroke Lodge, childhood home to philosopher Bertrand Russell and now a café. From the park's highest point, there are unobstructed views of St Paul's Cathedral, over 12 miles in the distance.

A vast park in a gorgeous part of London - with roaming deer to boot. Plenty of space for an afternoon nap, a game of frisbee, or a frolic with a dog.
Are you a dog and is your name Fenton? If yes, you will enjoy this park. Are you a human? If yes, you will also enjoy this park. Lovely scenery, all the deer around you could ever hope to chase, lakes, the Isabella Plantation, amazing for riding your bike around either on the dirt tracks around the outside or on the relatively quiet roads, skating, picnics, the park has it all. Take a short stroll from here to the Thames and have a walk by the river to Richmond town centre - lovely.
