About

The Park has changed little over the centuries and although it is surrounded by human habitation, the varied landscape of hills, woodland gardens and grasslands set among ancient trees abounds in wild life.

Richmond Park has been designated as a site of special scientific interest and a National Nature Reserve. The royal connections to this park probably go back further than any of the others, beginning with Edward (1272-1307), when the area was known as the Manor of Sheen. The name was changed to Richmond during Henry VII's reign.

This year the Royal Parks is providing free transport to help visitors, especially those with mobility issues, get better access to the Park and Isabella Plantation. Until 25th October there will be a minibus service every Wednesday between 9:40am and 16:10pm. The minibus starts at Roehampton Gate and runs clockwise to Isabella Plantation and all the car parks within the park, as well as stopping outside the car park at Ham Common crossroads (65 bus stop). To download the timetable please use the link "Mini Bus Service" to the left under "Also at this Venue".

The minibus is fully accessible and equipped with a ramp and steps to aid access and also has space to accommodate wheelchairs. Wheelchair users wishing to use this service should contact Malcolm Childs at mchilds@thehollylodgecentre.org.uk or ring 020 8940 8730.
