Sitting on a meander in the River Thames, Richmond is one of the most picturesque towns in south- west London. It boasts an incredible amount of green space, picturesque views and charming shops, and is conveniently situated on the District line and the main train line into London.
Ideal for families and young professionals, Richmond provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy the surrounding parks, paths and gardens. Local biking and running clubs are extremely popular, exploring the winding towpaths and tracks along the River Thames and across Richmond Green, and trips to Richmond Park – the largest Royal Park in London – and the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew are a must.
The views from the top of Richmond Hill are stunning – so scenic that they are protected by a specific Act of Parliament. Excellent schools are just another draw for families, the largest demographic in the town.
Georgian architectural heritage can be found throughout the town, with a range of period buildings being the most common results of a Richmond property search. Many have been converted into flats and riverside apartments, whilst others are extremely attractive suburban townhouses.
