Below Richmond Hill, the River Thames flows through an ocean of trees with rowing boats and passenger craft wending its way upstream. Beyond the hill lies the 2,500 acre Richmond Park, where large herds of red and fallow deer wander freely. Richmond Park has two golf courses and several horse riding centres.
Richmond shopping centre and the surrounding streets offer an enticing mix, bringing together top designer names and boutiques with small specialist and antiques shops. The pubs in Richmond are some of the best in the West London area.
A lively cultural calendar offers the finest entertainment outside central London with many West End shows previewing at Richmond Theatre and the exciting theatre 'In the Round' at the Orange Tree Theatre.
There are innovative exhibitions at the Landmark Arts Centre throughout the year and at Orleans House Gallery which also holds a fine collection of paintings from 18th century to the modern day. The Museum of Richmond has fascinating temporary exhibitions.
Richmond also provides some relaxing alternatives - why not hire a rowing boat and float down the Thames, have a cool drink or at a riverside pub; stroll along the river banks; or just sit and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful landscape.
