    walk along the riverside.

    by diosh Written Aug 14, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This view is looking towards Richmond Hill, from the Twickenham side of the river.This is where the Raft Man is moored.SEE:-Twickenham page!
    Walking along either side of the river bank (the Thames)is a relaxing way of visiting the area.One can walk for miles in either direction, from Richmond and on one side, or from Twickenham on the other.
    A good walk is to go to Kew and another in the other ddirection towards Ham & Kingston, past Petersham Meadows and further along,Eel PIe Island, which can be reached by ferry.

    Address: Richmond Riverside

    Raft man's view Star and Garter Home atop Richmond Hill. Peaceful- or what? Out for a row. Star and garter home- a it would have looked.

    Rugby fans paradise.

    by planxty Updated Jul 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Anybody who is in the least interested in Rugby Union should definitely drop in here for a drink. It is an absolute shrine to the game with all sorts of memorabilia everywhere - shirts, boots, cartoons, programmes, photos, you name it and it's there.

    It is also a haunt for famous rugby players. I once saw Jason Leonard, Jerry Guscott and Brian Moore all in there on a match day. Be aware that it gets terribly crowded if there is a good rugby match on telly.

    They also do reasonable pub food.

    Well worth a visit.

    Address: 17 Parkshot, Richmond, TW9 2RG

    Directions: Come out of the Station and turn right. Cross the road and walk down the little alley just before the Orange Tree pub. The Sun is at the bottom of the alley on the right.

    Richmond Bridge

    by biggeorge Written Feb 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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?

    Richmond Green

    by biggeorge Written Feb 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 Riverfront

    by biggeorge Written Feb 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Quiet Streets

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
