We are perfectly positioned for an after-lunch stroll in Royal Richmond Park which is only a couple of minutes walk away. Richmond Park which is the largest Royal Park in London, covering 2,500 acres and featuring spectacular, uninterrupted views (including St Paul’s Cathedral, 12 miles away). Around 650 deer roam free across the idyllic landscape of hills, woodlands, ponds, gardens and grasslands set amongst ancient trees.
During weekends and holidays the Park attracts visitors for picnics and informal sports, whether it’s cycling, jogging, a kickabout with a football or a game of French cricket. In season, the wooded areas and hills in the Park offer a near Central London option for orienteering, cross-country running and horse-riding, offered through a number of local stables. There are also two 18-hole golf courses.
The park is open from 7am in the summer, and 7.30am in winter, closing at dusk all year round (so you can pop in for a post-park pint!).
