Richmond is home to the largest royal park in London: Richmond Park, a rambling heath famous for Kew Gardens and filled with deer. It's a rural oasis in Zone 4. There are also countless bars, pubs and restaurants along Richmond's pretty riverfront, which boasts walks and watery activities too. 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. Plus the area has more than its fair share of historic houses, galleries and great shops. Let us show you around.
