Richmond Park, is the largest Royal Park in London and covers almost 2500 acres. The park is home to free roaming deer and two shire horses called Billy and Massey and also many different types of birds. From King Henrys Mound, a viewing area in the park you can see spectacular views of St Pauls Cathedral 10 miles away. The park also has an ornamental woodland garden, golf courses, playgrounds and the lovely Pembroke Lodge, once the home of the former Prime Minister Lord John Russell which is now a restaurant and café with stunning views. The park is a beautiful spot to take a break when we are surveying properties in the area.

The River Thames is a main feature of London and runs from the south-west to the east. The Thames used to be wider and less deep with marshlands around it but it has been considerably embanked over the years and much now flows underground. London is susceptible to flooding and the Thames Barrier was built to alleviate the problem, but more work is expected over the coming years to prevent floods.
