The London Naturally Group presents a return visit to Richmond Park simplified from the feedback provided. This is a circular route that will start and end at Pembroke Lodge. Public transport access from Richmond station and the 371 bus from outside the station to the American University stop a short walk to Richmond gate providing access to the Park & Lodge.
We will meet at Pembroke Lodge outside the Information Centre, which is a short walk from Richmond Gate. Alternatively there is car park at Pembroke Lodge for those wishing to drive. We will then spend a couple of hours photographing around the park, taking in the view from King Henry’s Mound and making our way around Pen Ponds before returning to Pembroke Lodge.
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. The Park famed for its views of the London skyline, red & fallow deer as well as a wide variety of bird life and other creatures providing many good photo opportunities.
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.
