Richmond is both a village and a part of Greater London. It's a popular place to live for affluent Londoners given its riverside location and the feeling once you're here that you've escaped the claustrophobia of the city. On a summer's day there is no nicer place to relax than in one off the bars or restaurants near the riverside.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely riverside location
  • Cons:A little bit too posh
  • In a nutshell:Close to London but feels like it's a long way away

    A colleague of mine studied in Richmond and loved it, so I've heard a lot about it. But she never mentioned the Old Meridian Line.

    Wow - I didn't know about the old Meridian Line - looks like I will have to take a stroll one weekend soon and check it out!

    That's an awful lot of walking, can I take a boat instead? ;-) Looks like there are some lovely places to visit in the area!
