Richmond boasts the longest stretch of the River Thames and it runs for over 10 miles through the borough, linking Richmond Town Centre 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.

The riverside around Richmond Bridge contains many bars and restaurants for you to explore as well as the historic high street.
