Nature / Park
Encompassing almost 1,011 hectares (2,500 acres), Richmond Park ranks as the largest Royal Park in London. The hills and grasslands are home to around 650 free-roaming red and fallow deer. Admire exotic plants in the ornamental woodland garden of Isabella Plantation. Take in the expansive view of the Thames Valley from Pembroke Lodge, the highest point in Richmond Park. If you prefer activity over leisure, you can play golf, fish, or ride a bicycle. Afterward, cool off at one of the onsite refreshment points. You can easily access the park by bus or Tube. There are parking lots if you choose to drive.

  • Beautiful royal park. I grew up walking my dog here. There is nowhere better in London for a walk and to get away from it all.
  • Fairly big nice park, parking can be a pain though. Didn't see any deer when we went unfortunately (spring and later summer/autumn), mostly just birds.
  • This is one of my favourite parks anywhere. It's more than 4 times larger than any other park in London. The deer really make it, but the variety of the landscape and vistas are what really get me. Wonderful in any weather. Great for cycling both off and on road. It's a shame about the cars when cycling on the road, but it's not really an issue for non cyclists. I love this place. Highly recommended.
  • Fantastic and huge park for all, especially for cyclists. Excellent way to spend day differently if you not a regular cyclist. You can even hire a bicycle if you need one or more.
  • This is just a lovely place to walk, enjoy nature, observe and just be in the moment. Please follow rules in the park, so our future generations can enjoy the same that we have now. I highly recommend.
