Richmond, just 20 minutes from the centre of London, is considered to be London's Greenest Borough. An eclectic mix of water meadow, flood plain, 21 miles of meandering River Thames and the world famous Royal Park.
Over time, the town has changed from being a country 'getaway' for the Royal Family and Court followers, to becoming what is now a beautiful town on the edge of London with fine shops, excellent hotels and restaurants, theatres and many sporting venues.
Across the River, Twickenham is the home of Rugby, and we have the oldest Polo club in London. Attractions include Kew Palace and Gardens, Wetlands Wildlife Centre, Ham House and Hampton Court Palace. Cycle paths and rural walks are abundant, and thanks to the work of the Thames Landscape Strategy there is expanding use of the river as a transport medium.
With its rich history and diversity, the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames can make for a relaxing break or an exciting holiday.
