Why locals love it

Just a short train ride out of the city to iconic Richmond lies the largest of London's eight Royal Parks. This historic wilderness not only accommodates a relaxing scenic stroll or cycle, but is home to 750 wild deer who can be seen in all their glory roaming the fields. This park is truly expansive, and one lap around the outer trail is 11km.

Why you should visit it

Both Richmond, and Richmond park are a truly unique experience that reflects the historic culture of England. Only 30 minutes away, it's a great opportunity to escape the chaos of the city for a few hours and enjoy a more peaceful adventure. If you plan to see it all, consider hiring a bike as it's around the size of London's West End.

Special tip

Richmond (Zone 4) can be accessed via the District Line of the Underground, or even quicker via South-West Trains services from Waterloo and Vauxhall.

Expansive park on the western fringe of London. Almost certain to see deer if you walk far enough. Views of London on a clear day, and lots of good pubs there too!

A great space, perfect for switching off and getting away from it all. Walk your dog too, they’ll be happy
