Evening Walk - Along the Thames and up through Petersham to a viewpoint in London’s largest Deer Park: Richmond Park

Richmond Circular

Length: 7.6 km, Ascent/Descent: 80m
Net Walking Time: ca. 1 ¾ hours, Toughness: 1 out of 10.

Take the 18.50 Reading train from Waterloo (Clapham J 18.58), arriving Richmond 19.06.
Richmond is also the terminus of a branch of the  District Line, 21 minutes from Earl’s Court.
Return trains: plenty. Richmond is in Zone 4.

Meet: outside the station just beyond the ticket gates.

Along the Thames and up through Petersham to a viewpoint in London’s largest Deer Park, followed by a short circuit through it.

Covid-compatibility: the Thames Path may be very busy but we can walk the route in reverse so that we cover that bit later in the evening.

Food/Drink: plenty of options near the end if we walk the route in reverse; still a fair amount of options if walked as prescribed.

n=6 on a w=dry-and-warm-but-sullen evening. Faultless route: Thames Path not too busy at all, the splendid Ham House, the park, some deer, the views from Richmond Hill, a drink at The Roebuck, with THAT famous view across the meadows to Thames and Valley. 21.45 train.
