Richmond – Our favourite bits

Chris: Tree lined Richmond Green, on a warm summers evening whilst families enjoy drinks in the setting sun and a cricket match plays in the background. View map >

Jonathan: My favourite place is Richmond Park the only place within the M25 that you can find the peace and quiet of the countryside with a fantastic view of the city from Sawyers Hill. Isabella Plantation is a must visit in the Springtime before retiring for coffee and cake at Pembroke Lodge.

Susie: It’s got to be Wholefoods in the town Centre, best burrito you can find!

Daisy: The view of London from the top of Saywers Hill in Richmond Park. View website >

Living in Richmond

Green Spaces

Richmond Park is the biggest green space in Greater London with wild fallow and red deer roaming freely. For the budding horticulturist there is the Isabella Plantation which is a 40 acre woodland set in the middle of the park. Alternatively, you can enjoy Terrace Gardens with its beautiful vista over Petersham Meadows which was beautifully depicted by the famous Turner painting. In the centre of town Richmond Green hosts cricket matches and on a hot day is busy with picnic blankets and pints of beer. A true haven.


The schools in Richmond are a big drawer for potential buyers and tenants. The Vineyard School is highly sought after as is Marshgate Primary School and are both marked as Ofsted ‘Outstanding.’ In addition there are numerous private school options with The Old Vicarage and Kings House School for Boys being amongst the most popular. For all the facts and figures please see Richmond borough schools.

What people say


"We purchased our house with Parkgate. We were truly delighted with service we got from them. They supported us not only till sales agreement but they supported us all the way through even after completion - unlike many many other agencies. All team members we interacted were great. Every other experience I had with real estate agencies are unfortunately quite the opposite. I wish all success to Parkgate as they deserve it."
