Richmond area information
Richmond is a popular suburban town in south-west London situated right on the banks of the River Thames and within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. With its attractive Georgian and Victorian homes, excellent independent schools and some of the best green spaces in London, it’s no wonder that it draws affluent families.
It offers a balance between town and country, with a good range of amenities but with a small-community vibe. It has fast links into central London for commuters, plus it’s close to the M4, M25 and Heathrow Airport for wider travels.
Richmond was first founded around the building of Richmond Palace in the 16th century, where Elizabeth I spent a lot of her time. In the 18th century, Richmond Bridge was built, as well as many of the existing listed Georgian terraced homes. When the train station opened in 1846, its popularity grew and it became enveloped in the ever-growing city of London.
