The beauty and the diversity of London never cease to amaze! Just a stone’s throw from central London, indulge yourself for a walk to the serene and unique landscape of Richmond Park.
The park is a top UK site for ancient trees and supports a range of rare species including fungi, birds, beetles, bats, grasses and wildflowers. Also you are going to see hundreds of red and fallow deer’s roaming free across the park.
Discover the Isabella Plantation woodland gardens, refuel at Pembrooke Lodge tea rooms and enjoy distant views of St Paul’s Cathedral from King Henry’s Mound.
During your visit there are many activities that you can try like power kiting, horse riding, golf, or hire a bike for some off-road cycling along the Tamsin Trail.
Richmond Park was created by Charles I in the 17th century as a deer park. The largest of London’s Royal Parks, it is of national and international importance for wildlife conservation. The park is a national nature reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation and is included, at Grade I, on Historic England’s Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England.
Richmond Park includes many buildings of architectural or historic interest. The Grade I-listed White Lodge was formerly a royal residence and is now home to the Royal Ballet School. The park’s boundary walls and ten other buildings are listed at Grade II, including Pembroke Lodge, the home of 19th-century British Prime Minister Lord John Russell and his grandson, the philosopher Bertrand Russell.
