Richmond Travel Guide: 285 reviews and 916 photos

Richmond, or Richmond upon Thames as it is more officially known, is located on the southwest border of Greater London and Surrey. It is a beautiful part of London with a real village atmosphere, located on a bend of the River Thames.

Richmond feels like you are a long way from central London, but it is in fact only a 20 minutes train ride from Waterloo station, and the centre of Richmond is only 5 minutes drive from the wonderful botanical gardens in Kew. Richmond has numerous restaurants and cafes, along with endless bars and historic pubs, including some great ones by the river.

Not only does Richmond have a lovely riverside location, it is home to the oldest remaining bridge spanning the Thames. Also of interest is vast Richmond Park, which is filled with red deer that run freely around the park - it is hard to believe you are still in London!

    Fantastic restaurant updates. I can't believe that you have visited more than 20 new restaurants only Richmond since Janaury 2008, which was when I last visited this gorgeous page.

    Great restaurant tips of Richmond. Getting hungry just looking at the photos. Used to have the old singer sewing machine at home.

    Sorry, I thought leaving a comment would add it underneath your tip (in this case about Nuggs 1268).

    Decided it was high time I started to explore your restaurant tips on this page = they're all really excellent but if I followed too many of them it would be dangerous for my waistline ;)
