Welcome to Richmond

The town of Richmond was built following Henry VII’s construction of Richmond Palace in the 16th century and for hundreds of years has been a retreat for the rich and famous. Based 15 miles south-west of central London, on the south side of the River Thames, Richmond is home to historic houses, its own Richmond Theatre, museums and galleries, and a town centre bursting with over 200 shops and restaurants. Arguably the greatest asset of this affluent, suburban town, though, is the world-renowned Royal Richmond Park, covering 2,500 acres of hills, woodland, gardens and grassland.

The benefits of living in Richmond include the community village feel, a bustling commercial centre, and an expanse of open parkland all situated only 15 minutes on the train from central London’s Waterloo station. The area has attracted notable residents including Sir David Attenborough, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

As one of the premier estate agents selling properties in the area, Marsh & Parsons prides itself on its local know-how. From the best schools in the area to the finest boutiques, bars and restaurants, and the cost of a resident’s parking permit, agents at Marsh & Parsons have their finger firmly on the local pulse.

The town dates back to the construction of Henry VII’s Richmond Palace in the 16th century and in 1777 Richmond Bridge was built, enabling the connection of Richmond town centre on the east bank to the district of east Twickenham. This area, along with the Georgian terraces around Richmond Green and Richmond Hill, has gained listed building status. Into the 19th century the streets that line Richmond Hill saw further development, and so arose a magnitude of luxurious housing, as well as the town centre’s retail offering.

Richmond is home to the largest commercial centre in the borough, and has a plethora of riverside pubs, such as the renowned Ivy restaurant, boutique cafés, and first class restaurants including The Bingham restaurant. There is a Whole Foods Market, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and a Marks & Spencer in the town centre, as well as a farmers market every Saturday in Heron Square.

The old cobbled streets of Richmond house many fascinating attractions, including the Victorian Richmond Theatre, which plays host to many shows on their way to the West End, and the Museum of Richmond which covers the history of the borough.

Richmond’s green spaces attract a lot of visitors, hosting a multitude of community events, all contributing to the strong community ethos. Fairs and festivals in the area range from Richmond Park in the First World War, to the Summer Festival, Plantasia, at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. Kew Gardens is the worlds first and greatest botanic gardens, and is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The borough of Richmond upon Thames also has three walking routes; The Thames Path National Trail, The Capital Ring, and The London Outer Orbital Path (LOOP), appealing to those who enjoy outdoor living.
