Bridge over the Thames that on summer evenings drunk australians like to jump off.
The Thames is a lot cleaner than it used to but it's still pretty skanky , i mean swimming in oil and poo doesn't make you more attractive to the opposite sex , does it?
Surrounded by pubs , in summer you can geta drink and sit on the green to watch the cricket. The standard is normally entertainingly hopeless ,but most people amuse themselves by drinking Pimms and either checking out the scantily clad sunbathers or laughing when well struck boundaries cause havoc among the spectators.
The river front is great for walkers ( if that's your kind of thing ) but mostly used in summer for large crowds of people to enjoy drinking bitter out of plastic glasses on the riverfront and is the perfect way to enjoy a warm summer evening.
The bridge was constructed in 1933 connecting Old Deer Park with St. Margerets and gets is name from the road that is going to Twickenham but it is 3 kms upstream from the other Twickenham Bridge.
HOTELS AND HEALTH CLUBS
Towards the top of Richmond Hill there are a few hotels as well as a Health Club, quite impressive and well kept buildings.
Don't really know what this building is but it is worth a quick look. It is opposite the Old Town Hall in Whittaker Avenue.
Hampton Court Palace
Henry VIII palace with an amazing maze, just down the road from Richmond. I suggest you take the boat trip or walk to the palace!

The main streets in Richmond are busy with traffic and full of typical high street stores, but some of the lanes leading off these streets contain more traditional shops and elegant houses.
Pubs along the river Thames
On a summer day, the river front is full of people cooling off with a few drinks until the evening comes...
