Richmond is situated in one of London’s greenest boroughs. It is home to Richmond Park, the largest royal park in London, created by Charles I in the 17th century as a deer park. Today it is a favourite location for visitors from far and wide. Just outside the entrance to Richmond Park, the view from the top of Richmond Hill of the winding river below is second to none and is a sight not to be missed.
Within easy reach of the river and with many good schools, and a bustling and cosmopolitan town centre with a wide variety of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, Richmond is one of the capital’s most popular places to live. The area is rich in history and culture. Theatre lovers can enjoy The Orange Tree and Richmond Theatres and Richmond is also is easy reach of the renowned Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. The banks of the river are graced with grand historic houses and the Richmond Green is also surrounded by elegant period properties.
