The largest of the capital’s eight Royal Parks and the biggest enclosed green space in London, Richmond Park is a National Nature Reserve that is home to 650 deer, London’s largest Site of Special Scientific Interest and a European Special Area of Conservation.
Richmond Park is home to Pembroke Lodge, the Isabella Plantation, which is a 40 acre woodland garden set within a Victorian woodland plantation planted in the 1830’s – it is best known for its evergreen azaleas, which line the ponds and streams and at their peak of flower in late April and early May.
RED DEER IN LONDON
As you wander through the ancient trees, you may spot the antlers of one of the 650 roaming Red and Fallow deer that call the park home. This 5,000 acres of carefully conserved urban parkland contains hundreds of thousands of trees, plants and wildlife, plus numerous historic monuments and attracts more than 77 million visitors each year.

At Christmas the park really comes alive with Festive Horse Drawn Rides through the Park in December, or free creative art class for Children in February.
