Since the 16th century, thanks to the beautiful scenery and clean air, a Western London suburb, lying on the right bank of the River Thames, has been a favorite residence of the English Kings, celebrities and other wealthy citizens. Picturesque views of the Thames from the windows of many houses, the proximity to the Royal Kew Gardens, silence, coziness and quietness have been attracting wealthy people, tired of the hustle and bustle of the big city, for a very long time. You can still meet deer, while walking in the Richmond Park, and while walking along the promenade, considered as one of the most spectacular ones, you can enjoy the peace and serenity. There you can get a feeling that you are far out of a town. Not by accident, Richmond is a favorite destination for country walks of residents of the British capital.
