Escape the fast pace of city life and experience the relaxed magic of Richmond upon Thames during your visit to London. It’s the most rustic and beautiful London borough combining remarkable history, nature and royal heritage. Only 8 miles from the heart of London, it’s 20 minutes by fast train from London Waterloo station.
For a different London experience, enjoy a leisurely and informative walking tour in leafy Richmond upon Thames with our classic Richmond Walking Tour. You can see the iconic view from Richmond Hill, watch wild deer, and step back in history.
Cross the Thames from elegant Kew to explore the gritty industrial heritage of Brentford on our Kew, Brentford & Richmond Walking Tour. This interest-packed walk of marked contrasts and variety continues by Syon Park and Old Isleworth to finish at Richmond Riverside. A shorter version of this walk is available, covering Kew and Brentford only, our Kew & Brentford Walking Tour.
All the walking is moderately easy, along well-maintained paths and trails. There is an excellent choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants at the start and finish of each walk.
We offer scheduled guided walks around Richmond, Twickenham, Kew and Brentford from June to October, with private custom tours all year round.
