The London Naturally Group presents an informal Sunday stroll in Richmond Park. This is a circular route that will start and end at Kingston gate. Norbiton station is the closest to the park, which provides access through Kingston Gate, alternatively Richmond Station and the 371 bus to Kingston Gate.
We will meet at Kingston Gate outside the public toilets, which is a short walk from Norbiton Station or the 371 bus stop. Alternatively there is car park at Kingston Gate for those wishing to drive. We will then spend a couple of hours photographing around the park, taking in Isabella Plantation and Pen Ponds before returning to Kingston Gate.
Details of Event:
Richmond Park is the largest of London’s Royal Parks covering an area of 2,500 acres. The Park has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a National Nature Reserve.

There are various refreshment points within the Park and for anyone who wants to stay for lunch after the walk, Pembroke Lodge offers refreshments in an elegant Georgian Tea Rooms or a snack bar outside the lodge. Pembroke Lodge is located some 40 minute walk from Kingston gate.
