Is Richmond Park in walking distance from the station?

I would like to show Richmond Park to my mum but we do not have a car. How can I approach it from Richmond station and how far is it? Can we walk there?

  • It's about a 30 minute walk from Richmond station if you follow the main roads (so you're less likely to get lost if you're unfamiliar with the area). If you cut through the suburban streets and follow a more direct course it's about 20-25 minutes.

  • Get the 371 bus from in front of Richmond station and get off at the Lass O' Richmond pub. 2 minute walk from there.

  • It's 1.5miles from Richmond station to Richmond Park. Depending on how much time you have you can either walk along the river (nicest way) and then up the hill, or just stick to going up the road up Richmond Hill, getting the famous view from Richmond Terrace just before the park.

  • Hi, The distance from the station is approx. 1.2 miles; this is assuming you enter the park at Richmond Gate, at the top of Richmond Hill. The fact that it is at the top of the hill then poses the question back to you regarding both your mother's and your mobility. I am healthy and fairly fit and would expect to do the walk in about 20 mins. Please bear in mind that it is all up hill although there are some breathtaking views along the way, together with some striking architecture, both of which are worthy of stopping, catching breath and admiring! Public transport is an alternative to consider and if you follow this link http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/richmond_park/about.cfm there are a number of options. Enjoy your time there!
