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.

The Last Tuesday Society
A weird and wonderful cocktail bar on Mare Street located above The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art and Natural History. Expect oddities, bones and books in a nod to downstairs, as well as a gallery space and a full-sized taxidermied lion named Leonora at one of the tables. Inspired by the prohibiton era, TLTS have a menu devoted to Absinthe, as well as two pages of cocktails and a handful of beers and wines. Bar nibbles include a cheese board, kalamata tapenade and roasted cashews. Regular events are held here, too, including workshops in taxidermy or cocktails, lectures, literary launches and more.
Venue says: “Join us for aperitivo east London style! Sample Broadway Market's finest cheeses and meats, free with each cocktail order. Every Thursday!”
