I have stayed in Richmond both as a convenient location for Twickenham Stadium and as a staging point for visits into London on business. It has a good centre for eating and drinking with some wonderful scenery, well worth a visit.

Lovely place to get a real feel for London without the busyness of London, Brought back lovely memories for my wife as she lived and worked there many years ago. Would highly recommend Richmond to anyone.

Beautiful scenery with a great choice of retaurants and quant bars. Just a shame that I didn't seem to be able to find a luxury hotel. We ate at 'The Ivy,' and 'Jackson and Rye'. Perfectly cooked food and great service.

Recommended in Richmond upon Thames

Walk along the thames to Petersham nursery, take the little ferry to Twickenham to visit Orleon house or Marple hill house. Walk into beautiful Richmond park

Very nice area to stay in and easy to access with a car from the Motorway. It is only an hour tube ride into central London.

Small city shopping but with nice apartment store and lovely food market style shop/cafe

Adesso - Italian / Sicilian Restaurant at the bottom of Richmond Hill

Returning to room and walks along the river thames

Not dangerous if you stay inside the cage.

Richmond hill bakery Alberts Deli

Red deer in Richmond park
