Richmond always has something on. It's home to the largest royal park in London, Richmond Park, a rambling heath famous for Kew Gardens and filled with deer. For those who prefer indoor pursuits, Richmond Theatre often features shows that will either go on to the West End, or West End shows that are going on to tour the country. If you fancy sipping a pint by the river, the pubs in Richmond are for you.

Syon House and Park
Syon House is bursting with history. The magnificent turreted pile looks out over the Thames towards Kew. It was built on the site of a medieval abbey that was brutally dissolved by Henry VIII, and it was here that Henry's fifth wife Catherine Howard awaited her execution.
