What's on in Richmond

Welcome to Richmond upon Thames, a jewel in London’s crown. Probably London's most attractive borough, it has long been a favourite retreat for Royalty and the rich and famous. 

The River Thames runs for over 10 miles through the borough, linking Hampton Court Palace, Richmond Town Centre and Kew Gardens with London. Richmond rivals anywhere in London with its beautiful Royal Parks and open spaces, historic houses, theatres, museums, galleries, exhibits and town centres bursting with life.

Richmond is situated 10 miles southwest of Central London and can be accessed by tube, train, bus, car, bike, boat and foot. With easy access and a world to see and do, Richmond upon Thames provides the perfect getaway.

Richmond in film

Filming of Agatha Christie's Poirot on Richmond Green

FilmRichmond is Richmond Council's film office. Over the years we have played host to thousands of film productions in the borough, which has an amazing and vast array of film locations to offer.

Going as far back as the 1960s when The Avengers filmed in York House Gardens, Twickenham and The Beatles filmed at Twickenham Studios, to current dramas such as Downton Abbey and Mr Selfridge – Richmond upon Thames has been the chosen location to film.
