"During the 1700s, William Byrd II of Westover came to live in London. Upon his return to Virginia, he established the town of Richmond, naming it after Richmond, London after noting the similarity in their landscapes."

This is my favourite view of Richmond Bridge and riverside!

What locals say about Richmond

  1. The perfect mix of country land city life. What's not to love!

  2. What isn't there to love about Richmond? 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 or over to the expansive green. For you evenings there's a plethora of pubs, bars and restaurants with many putting on live music, quizzes and other entertainment. For a slightly more cultured evening you have two theatres to choose from, one standard theatre and one in the round. For film fans there isn't just one cinema but three including one art house cinema with a diverse selection of small homegrown titles and international films. The transport links can take you into central within an hour and those who drive can be in the country in the same amount of time. To be honest, I can not think of anywhere better to live.

  3. The river, the pubs, the bars, the people!

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.
