"Richmond ,sanctuary from the City" Richmond by biggeorge
Richmond Travel Guide: 285 reviews and 916 photos
When the filth and the fury of London gets a bit much people tend to head for Richmond to relax by the river.
As well as nearby Kew Gardens ,Richmond has river front bars and an air of high class that only expensive house prices and the close proximity to Twickenham can produce.
The people you see about can be lazily stereotyped as the posh boys and wannabe it girls ,think Prince William ( sunglasses on head , rugby shirt ,gigantic teeth , drinking Pimms ) , and the ladies are all drawn out vowels " daaarrling " and white wine. The rugby crowd are normally good for a laugh though.
- Pros:Posh girls , drinking by the river ,cricket on the green
- Cons:RA RA RA RA I've got too much blaaady money.
- In a nutshell:Nice but dim
O'Neills on the main road suffers from being always excessively crowded and having the bar queue in the narrowest part... more travel advice
The space between these two pubs is where the crowds gather on the warm summer evenings. A right old mixture of drunks... more travel advice
