    Walked some of the park as stage six of the Capital Ring Walk. Beautiful day, beautiful views, and simply just a lovely place to visit.  more »

    Who is slightly longer in London, and yearns for extensive nature, which should be necessarily here. From the Centre (Vauxhall Bridge), drive 20 minutes by train and then again 15 minutes up to the Park. This is very extensive and you completely forget that one is in London. Always meet a deer and deer that are not unsociable. Attention on the feces of animals lying around everywhere. Who would like to relax time, should bring a picnic blanket and maybe Lake approximately in the middle of the Park take a rest. Finally, you can see the Petersham of nurseries and in the local Café sit, located on the edge of Richmond Park.

    We visited Richmond Park for a walk and were astounded. We knew the place was big but we were amazed by how big it was, you could spend hours and hours in there exploring. We were particularly looking...  more »

  • 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.
