Richmond possesses a timeless charm more akin to a village than a town. Henry VII named Richmond after his favourite Earldom, Richmond in Yorkshire, and the gateway of his magnificent Palace, favoured by Elizabeth I, still remains.

Richmond Theatre is a truly beautiful buidling with a well-deserved reputation for quality and entertainment. There are many ways to enjoy this very special and historic building, which was built in 1899 and designed by the famous theatre architect Frank Matcham.

The view of the Thames from the top of Richmond Hill, protected by an Act of Parliament since 1902, has been a source of inspiration for artists and poets throughout the years.

Richmond Green is a recreation area located near the centre of Richmond. The Green has been described as one of the most beautiful urban greens surviving anywhere in England.
