Why locals recommend it
This huge park has the most incredible history—Henry VIII used to hunt here, and the Royal Ballet school is situated in the middle. It’s great for a run or long walk as there are wild deer roaming about and coffee stalls dotted around for when you want a break. One of our favourite places. Go and meditate by Pen Ponds at sunrise or sunset. It’s so peaceful and still.

Great for a country walk in a big city. Hundreds of deer roam freely and the scones at the main house are good

Just a 15min walk away, perfect for a stroll or a whole day out. Isabella Plantation is beautiful in Spring, do not miss! Richmond Park feels like you are literally out in the English countryside, sometimes you do not see anyone for so long you forget you're in London.

Very large Royal Park, long and short walks with hills, ponds, wild deer and other wildlife, some views over the city of London.

It's quite far so we only recommend it if you are staying for approx. a week. You can take a ferry from central London (quite expensive but very enjoyable) or take a train from Waterloo (approx 30 min). It's a very posh area of London with massive park full of free-roaming deers. Just be advised…

“Lovely park located a 20 min drive from New Malden station. Also accessible by train. Great for dog walkers as there are wide areas where they may go off-leash. Home of many deer and wild fowl, as well as the Diana memorial fountain. ”
