While you Walk around Richmond

Just take some time to rest your eyes through the Green, and notice how pretty it is – oh deer that park, the royal ballet school, the Riverside and the boats, The Cricketers, the pet dogs…

Then maybe make your way to a bakery, an italian restaurant, a polo club, see some horses, Pembroke Lodge, a royal observatory, a museum, a garden centre, or a golf club.

If that’s too much, don’t worry – and don’t let the etimology of its name put you off! Richmond also has got a rugby club, it’s fish n chips shop, old phone cabins and an old bridge over the Thames river with ice cream vans in summer. So, I wonder, what’s not to love? Richmond is somehow like a whole English experience condensed in a south London neighbourhood…
