Few spots along the River Thames are more scenic than Richmond. Not surprisingly, it’s been favoured by the royals since Henry VII built Richmond Palace here in the 16th century. While the palace no longer remains, the many stately homes provide a glimpse into this rich past. Today, that sense of exclusivity is just as prevalent, as this suburb continues to attract London’s rich and famous.

The capital may be a short distance away, but Richmond boasts a tranquility unlike many of the neighbouring commuter towns. The appeal lies in open spaces such as Richmond Hill. Considered one of the most picturesque parts of London, this striking view leaves a lasting impression. Richmond Park is another delight, with 2,500 acres of woodland featuring landscaped gardens, ponds and ancient trees.

Even the town centre boasts a stretch of greenery: a park known as The Green can be found between attractive Georgian-era properties. Small paths navigate from here to the shops and vibrant attractions of Richmond town centre. Aside from the independent retailers, residents can enjoy the stylish eateries or dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant. Other local favourites include the ODEON cinema and Richmond Theatre.

Given these attractions coupled with the spectacular scenery, Richmond is equally attractive to families and young professionals. The top-performing schools of the area provide further appeal, and the wide array of properties offers everything from modern flats to historic cottages.

History of Richmond

Formerly part of the area known as Shene, the town only gained its name following the commissioning of Richmond Palace. During the 16th century this impressive estate was home to Queen Elizabeth I, and Shakespeare is rumoured to have performed here.

Despite its regal past, the castle later fell into disrepair before being renovated as a royal nursery. Much of the area surrounding Richmond remained agricultural and was used by the affluent of London for hunting. After a lodge was built for George II, more development was to follow, including impressions manors such as Downe House and Wick House.

More luxury housing developments were built in the 19th century, while modern infrastructure and convenience arrived with the opening of the Underground and Overground. Now accessible as a commuting town, Richmond attracted a diverse population, with its many listed buildings and preserved Georgian terraces.
