Getting There

A circular trail on the paths of Richmond Park. Richmond Park is a large bustling park where fallow deer, red deer and a whole host of wildlife share the area with joggers, cyclists and walkers. One of London's Royal Parks, the park dates back to the early 1600s and is popular with residents and visitors alike. Most of the walk follows tarmac paths put about a quarter of it follows grass paths which can get muddy in winter and after rain. There are only a few steady climbs and descents. The paths can be quite busy and you are likely to be sharing them with plenty of joggers and cyclists. Dogs are welcome in Richmond Park but remember there are free roaming deer so you need to keep them under close control. The deer can become aggressive towards dogs during the breeding season (Sep/Oct) and the birthing season (May to July). There is a park information centre, refreshment kiosk and public toilets alongside the car park at the start. Approximate time 2 hours.

The walk starts from the free car park within Richmond Park at Pembroke Lodge on Queen's Road. (Note: vehicle access to the park is limited to daylight hours). If you enter the park through the Richmond Gate entrance, turn right at the first roundabout and the car park can be found further along Queen's Road on the right hand side. Approximate post code TW10 5HX.

The car park was closed but we managed to find parking nearby after a lot of driving around. The walk was nice and easy and lots of shade.

Easy trail to walk and follow. Moderate might be a stretch but it’s great for a nice stroll away from the city. Made ours short as it’s pretty boring and there were a lot of people

A pleasant enough walk but being a lover of Richmond Park I know it has much more to offer than this walk incorporates. Also probably too many paths near roads for dog walkers.
