Welcome To VisitRichmond

Welcome to Richmond upon Thames, London's most attractive borough, which for hundreds of years has been a favourite retreat of Royalty, the rich and the famous. Richmond lies 15 miles southwest of central London yet a fast train from London Waterloo will bring you here in 15 minutes.

When you arrive you will be in a different world. The River Thames runs through the heart of the borough for 21 miles linking Hampton Court Palace, Richmond town centre and Kew Gardens with central London. With beautiful Royal parks and historic houses, theatres, museums and galleries rich with exhibits, and town centres bursting with shops and restaurants, Richmond upon Thames rivals anywhere in London.
