Spending a bit of time in Richmond Park you can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and feel like your in the countryside for a while, but ten minutes later you can be back on the high street with its mix of big brands and independent shops. During the day you have a multitude of cafes for coffee and lunch which on nice days can be taken down the the gorgeous riverside ... more

  1. About Richmond

    Richmond is a suburban town in southwest London, England and part of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is located 8.2 miles (13.2 km) west-southwest of Charing Cross and is one of thirty-five major centres identified in the London Plan. The formation and naming of the town are due to the building of Richmond Palace early in the 16th century and the development of Richmond as a London suburb began with the opening of the railway station in 1846. The civil parish of Richmond became a municipal borough in 1890, which was enlarged in 1933; it has formed part of Greater London since 1965. Located on a meander of the River Thames, Richmond now forms a significant local commercial centre with a number of parks and open spaces and has a developed retail and night-time economy.
