This past Sunday I had the pleasure of visiting Richmond park for the afternoon. The scenery was beautiful and the chilly weather added to the fall feeling!
I had no idea how big this place was until I spent a few hours walking around and only checked out about a quarter of the grounds.
What was even more surprising was the amount of deer! I loved getting up close in the woods to a family of them, taking pictures quietly so not to startle.
All that cold be heard was the casual dropping of chestnuts from the trees above, likely shaken off by the birds.
I made it to the centre of the park where there was a large pond and old benches around its circumference. It was a great place to rest, put on some gloves and get ready to make my way back as it was getting dark.
It was a great afternoon, and I recommend going if you have the chance. It’s a lovely break from the hectic city life in more central areas of London!
Have any of you ever been to Richmond Park? What did you think? Please let me know!
