1 hour in Richmond

Richmond's beautiful riverside and the tranquil Iconic Vew from the top of Richmond Hill will cater for all tastes - from playful lively children to those who prefer some peace and quiet.

This itinerary is suitable for any time of the day although we have listed it here over lunch time.



Take a walk along Richmond Riverside and follow the signs to Terrace Gardens.

Walk through Terrace Gardens, which are famous for their seasonal bedding, shrubberies, rockery and rose garden, set amongst fine trees and sloping lawns.

Turn to your right at the top of the gardens and see the Iconic View on Richmond Hill, protected by an Act of Parliament since 1902.

Stop for a coffee and a bite to eat at Tide Tables on the Riverside or the Hollyhock Café in the Terrace Gardens.
