This protected view of the River Thames from the Terrace on Richmond Hill has been made famous by poets and artists such as JW Turner and William Wordsworth.

The view from the Terrace sweeps down onto the Terrace Gardens and Field towards the River Thames overlooking the Twickenham side of the borough and Orleans House Gallery.

It is a popular view favoured by Film and TV productions. Feature film ‘The Hours’ starring Nicole Kidman used the view as a backdrop.
