Latest reviews | Events in Richmond Upon Thames | 10 Places to Stay

Richmond-upon-Thames is the most scenic borough in London, with the river Thames meandering through 21 miles of lush greenery and open spaces where a string of royal palaces once stood. Richmond, the principal town, is one of the settlements that's developed beside the river. Picturesque and village-like, Richmond is full of pleasures: parks and woodlands, historic buildings, narrow streets, small shops and waterside restaurants are among the delightful features of a town that caters for a wide range of interests, from polo to pubs. The 2,500-acre Richmond Park is home to herds of free-roaming deer, while the landscapes of Old Deer Park, at the Kew border, include sports courts and pitches. Richmond Green, framed by lovely period houses, was formerly the scene of tournaments, archery contests and the first known inter-county cricket match. Walkers will enjoy the Terrace Gardens, rising from the river to Richmond Hill whose peak offers stunning views over the countryside. Other attractions in Richmond include river trips, a museum, two theatres, a floating puppet theatre and three cinemas. These include the Filmhouse, an arthouse venue recently voted best neighbourhood cinema by The Independent newspaper and LBC Radio. Richmond is served by tube and mainline trains.
