Richmond is where you’ll find the largest royal park in London. Richmond Park is 2,500 acres of grassland, ancient woodland and wide open space, home to lush greenery and herds of deer. It’s a rural oasis in Zone 4. And it’s all just a few miles from manicured Kew Gardens, too. Once your lungs are full of the fresh stuff, Richmond’s pretty riverfront is a good place to head. There are walking routes and watery activities here, as well as great bars, pubs and restaurants that spill outside when the sun shines. 

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, too. Let us show you around.
