Very Early Morning Walk in Richmond Park

31 October 2015
5km – with Prasana.

I think I’ve never been in Richmond Park so early. 9am sharp. Hello Park Runners. But we were not here for running. God, I hate running. I’m far too lazy to move all my flab. Walking is enough :).

I’ve been to this park quite a few times now and it looks totally different in the morning. Or maybe it was because it’s autumn.

What to do:

Richmond Park is well worth a visit at any time of the year in any weather for any outdoorsy activity. Walking, running, cycling. Or just a cup of tea on the terrace of Pembroke Lodge. (Even if that’s not really an outdoorsy activity :).)

How to get there:

Richmond Park is huge and you can approach it from several directions. Trains and tube are running in Richmond. From the train station it’s a 20 minute walk to the park via Highstreet and Richmond Hill. There are trains and buses from Kingston and Roehampton, respectively, as well. There are 6 car parks across Richmond Park, too. Just leave your car there and start walking.

For the kids:

Did you know there is deer in Richmond Park? You might be lucky to see some. They are mostly together in a herd. So if you see any then mostly several. And if you don’t then because they all are together in another place of the park. But it’s well worth looking around when you’re there.
