This is the beautiful river Thames and Richmond Bridge.Many boats are moored alongside the river.One can take a boat trip to London or to Hampton Court from the landing stage by the White Cross pub, or just walk along the river admiring the view!
The riverside path goes towards Kew in one direction and in the other, towards Ham, Twickenham and Teddington.The lock at Teddington is the last one on the Thames, from there on it is non- tidal.
There are several pubs beside the river, near the bridge.The White Cross is a traditional English pub, renowned for its Young's beer.
Further along, past the bridge are the Slug and Lettuce and Henry's,(usually frequented by the younger Richmond residents!).They all provide good food and the White Cross has a garden at the front, as well as a second bar, in the garden, so you don't even have to go back inside the pub to replenish your glass!

The Canyon restaurant is on the riverfront, near to where this picture was taken.It's very fashionable and pricey, all the celebs go there.The restaurant collects its customers in buggies that are able to drive along the towpath, to save them walking from the main road!
