Richmond may only be eight or so miles from Charing Cross, but it feels a world away. Best known for its parks, deer and riverside pubs, it can be hard to believe you're in London at all. While we've mainly focused on the town of Richmond and the vast expanse of Richmond Park here, we've also included a few shots from other places around the London Borough of Richmond.
