Directions from Richmond station

Turn left out of Richmond station and walk down the main shopping street (The Quadrant).

Continue straight until you have House of Fraser on your right. The road takes a turn to the left and starts to climb up Richmond Hill towards Richmond Park.

At this point you have a choice. The quickest way to walk to the park is straight up Richmond Hill, but you may want to go along the River Thames path, across Petersham Meadows and up through Petersham Park (opposite the Dysart Pub in Petersham).
