"In 1596, Sir John Harington unveiled his amazing flushing loo! As a gift to Queen Elizabeth, he had one installed in Richmond Palace, but Her Majesty declined to use it owing to the sound it made!"

This is my favourite view of Richmond Bridge and riverside!

Marble Hill Park is a great place for walking my dog or having a picnic overlooking the river.
