This is a part of London we love. Richmond is a gorgeous town with so much going for it, beautiful homes, lovely river views, lots of night life and shopping venues etc.

We lived here for a year prior to moving to Wimbledon, in East Sheen - town next to Richmond, in the Richmond-upon-Thames Borough. It is about 45 minutes out of London on the slow train.

Richmond is a really picturesque part of the Thames River. Not all of the river bank is pretty in my opinion, but this section is absolutely gorgeous.

There are always rowers and barges etc. on the river during summer, the mood is festive and everyone sits and has a beer on the banks of the river.

It really is a special place, with a lot to offer in the way of beauty, shopping, culture, entertainment and fun!
