Living in our beautiful borough it’s easy to enjoy a great day out without breaking the bank. Pack a picnic, take a stroll or hop on a bike or boat, and soak up the rich history, royal parks, cosmopolitan riverside and striking landscapes.
Here’s a taster of how to spend a lazy weekend or two!
Cycling & bike hire
Rowing boat hire
Have fun on the water and hire a rowing boat from Richmond Bridge Boat Houses, affordably priced by the hour or day. Stop off on the grassy banks for a picnic, or visit one of Richmond's historic houses.
Explore the market
Browse the Duck Pond Market held in Heron Square each Sunday, abuzz with mouth-watering street food, art, jewellery and crafts. Great for celeb spotting too!
A bite to eat
Delicious lunches and afternoon teas are served at the Bingham overlooking the river. Or pick up an artisan picnic from Cook & Garcia opposite Richmond Station or Alberts Deli off the Sheen Road. Sorted!
