One of the most beautiful parts of London, the borough of Richmond is home to the Royal Botanic gardens (Kew Gardens) – a world heritage site since 2003, Richmond Green (home of Sheen House, which was to become a favoured Royal residence in the middle ages) and Richmond Upon Thames – there are some lovely views to be had along the river and J.M.W Turner (renowned English painter) painted many scenes in the area.

Richmond can boast a range of sporting commendations - Mortlake is the finishing point of the main annual Cambridge and Oxford Boat race, Twickenham is home to the Rugby Union Headquarters and Stadium, and the worlds oldest hockey club is in Teddington.

Home to some of London’s most sought after residences, Richmond is an expensive borough in which to live. Although, it has good rail links and as such is never more than a short journey from more affordable areas. There are also several unique clothing outlets and boutiques.
