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 Gardens were formed in the 1880s and were then extended to the river about 40 years later. The Terrace Gardens have recently been restored and are now a tranquil and relaxing area to enjoy.
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.
