London is one of the world’s greatest cities, replete with the finest dining experiences, attractions, iconic landmarks, history, sporting venues and much more.
If you’re thinking of moving to London, or indeed within London, we’d like to ask one simple question – what better place to move than London’s happiest borough, Richmond?
Things to do in Richmond
A healthy dose of the natural world now and then is the secret to a happy life in the city. Thankfully, Richmond offers many places to walk and cycle at the weekend. The Isabella Plantation offer hundreds of botanical wonders to marvel at and Richmond Park is large enough to lose yourself in.
For culture buffs, the options that are literally around the corner include the Marianne North Gallery, Richmond Theatre, the National Archives and Kew Palace. Richmond isn’t short of fine places to eat, either.
For classic British roasts, there are many great pubs, from the Bulls Head to The Fallow Deer. There’s also many exotic offerings, from Lebanese at Sidra’s, French at The Glasshouse and Italian at Q Verde and Treviso.
If your intentions are international, Richmond is a mere half hour taxi ride away from Heathrow Airport. Gatwick is not much more at 45 minutes. By car, Richmond is a short journey away from the M3, M25 and M4 – all of which will quickly connect you to the rest of London and the UK.
The borough is served by the District Line of the London Underground service to Richmond and Kew Gardens. By train, you’ll be glad to know the borough has its own station served by South West Trains.
As you will likely know, the high street is home to many estate agents and lettings agents who have their work cut out with the hundreds of brilliant homes for sale and rent in the borough.
Multiple schools serve Richmond, including public and state, Roman Catholic, Church of England and more. Of course, the full range from nursery to primary to secondary and sixth form are represented.
