  • The huge park, you can walk around all day. Different landscapes-Lakes, fields and forests. And of course the deer, they are everywhere! Love this place, especially when the weather is nice.

  • Wildlife is amazing! :) A great place for photographers of nature or if you just want to have a walk and enjoy the lovely colours and squirrels around the park. Don't upset the crows though.
  • Been going back every year for the last 6 years. You can park the car at Pembroke lodge. Little takeaway outlets, public toilets and miles and miles of space to walk and enjoy the wild life. Deer, Green parrots, squirrels, ducks, swans and so much more.
  • Love this park, I walk my dogs here. It is a beautiful place full of wildlife. I used to ride around this park and it is amazing.
  • One of the main reasons I love Richmond park,is because of all the wild deer.in fact theirs approximately 650 deer's(350 fallow and 300 red). 2350 acres to explore.1350 species of beetles,730 species of butterflies,and moths.450 species plants,and ferns,400 species of fungi,130 species of spiders. The largest enclosed urban park in Europe,and the largest of the Royal parks,and as big as the others combined.
  • Amazing! So beautiful. It is easy to spot the deer. The park is massive so I'd recommend getting bicycle or driving to find the deer. You're not allowed to stop the car on the roads inside the park. So you'd. Have to go to the parking, and then walk back to where you spotted the animals.
