For over 400 years Richmond Green has been surrounded by houses and commercial properties, first built to provide accommodation for people serving or visiting Richmond Palace. Unfortunately only parts of Richmond Palace still exist however, with classic Georgian and Victorian properties and a Victorian Theatre as a backdrop, it is a very popular location for productions to film.
