Richmond Park, South West London

A place where most Londoners go to get their green space fix, historical Richmond Park is a 2,500 acre site of special scientific interest. Originally established by Charles I in 1637 as a hunting area, the park with its ornamental gardens, ancient oaks and 600 red and fallow deer roaming freely, still manages to retain a medieval feel. A very popular spot especially in summer, locals and out-of-towners come here for summer picnics, quiet walks, lazy scenic drives and of course, obligatory deer watching.
