Richmond Bridge and Riverside

The Richmond Society

Richmond upon Thames is the London Borough where the country comes to town. Its unique situation on a beautiful bend of the river, bounded by two Royal Parks and Kew Gardens, has attracted visitors for centuries, and we must thank previous generations for the fact that so much of its beauty has been preserved for so long. It was due to local pressure in the past,that two of its vistas are actually protected by Acts of Parliament - the view from The Terrace across the water meadows and river and the view from the Park over seven miles of London to the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral.

The Richmond Society works to preserve and enhance all of this and more. For further information, click on Richmond Society at a Glance or any of the links above.
