Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.
