Richmond Park


The largest Royal Park in London (1,000 hectares/2,500 acres), and home to 650 deer. This pastoral landscape of hills and woodlands set amongst ancient trees, with plants, animals and butterflies, offers a peaceful respite to visitors.

There are playgrounds at Kingston and Petersham gates, and two golf courses near Roehampton Gate. Educational facilities for those with special needs can be found at Holly Lodge Centre (by appointment). There is fishing available at Pen Ponds, plus horse-riding tracks and a cycling path. Public toilets with disabled access are located at most main gates.

The Isabella Plantation is an organic woodland garden. For eating, choose from Pembroke Lodge, a Georgian mansion with spectacular views and garden seating, Roehampton Café or refreshment kiosks located at main car parks.

Love love love this beautiful park. Its three times larger than central park, acres of land, and I love how nothing is touched. No grass is mowed, trees are pruned but the rest of it is left as it is. Natural beauty at its finest.

You don't feel as though you're in London, we walked loads, and saw a few deers here and there. Came across a massive lake with little ducklings. It was a perfect...more

It is so beautiful and serene. It is truly beautiful. From the ponds, the massive amounts of fallow deer to the long grasses - it's all great! My husband and I loved the paths that we were...more

Heaven within the M25.

Green in summer, gold in autumn, and filled with deer and ponds and other beauty. Never a need to see the same part twice! There's not much to write about it that hasn't been already said.
