Richmond Upon Thames

A Day Out In Richmond

Riverside scenes

Today I had a lovely day out in Richmond upon Thames with a friend. This is a beautiful old fashioned town just ten miles from central London and surrounded by all the beauties of the River Thames and Richmond Park. The cobbled streets that wend down from the High Street to the Richmond Green are full of individual charming shops. Most are very tiny indeed and are extremely old fashioned and are oozing with character. Here are some of the scenes of my day  ...

Colourful boutiques

Super gift shops

Interesting jewellers

Fascinating shop windows

Yummy chocolate shop

  1. What did you do with all the people!?
    Looks lovely - if not a bit eerie!

  2. Lovely day out. I haven't been in Richmond for years, but I do like it
