    Richmond – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Richmond Park
      3 times the size of New York’s Central Park, Richmond Park stretches over 3.69 miles² (that’s 2,500 acres), is home to 600 deer (as seen in the infamous dog chasing video… “Fenton!”) and has golf courses and play areas. King Henry’s Mound in the park offers incredible views over London encompassing St Paul’s Cathedral, it’s said that it’s the site Henry VIII came to while awaiting news of the death of Ann Boleyn. The park is now a Site of Scientific Interest and National Nature Reserve.
    2. Richmond Sites
      As well as the world-famous plants and seed depository Kew Gardens stores over 1,000 historic records. Twickenham Rugby Stadium is considered the home if English rugby. Hampton Court Palace was one of the finest and most expensive buildings in England. Richmond Bridge is the oldest bridge over the Thames and dates back to 1777. All are within the London Borough of Richmond.
    3. Richmond-ites
      Famous people to have called Richmond ‘home’ include; Tom Hardy (actor), Sir David Attenborough (naturalist), Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (actors), Rick Astley (singer), Richard E. Grant (actor), Amanda Holden (TV judge), Dougie Poynter (musician, Mcfly), Mick Jagger (singer), Pete Townshend (musician), Ronnie Wood (musician), Virginia Woolf, (writer), Jane Horrocks (actor) and Geoffrey Chaucer (writer).
    4. Hampton Court Palace
      One of the most famous locations in the borough, parts of the palace date back to 1494. In 1514 Cardinal Wolsey set about converting it into a ‘lavish palace’. In fact, it became so grand (ostentatiously better than any royal residences at the time) that Henry VIII took it for himself. He brought all his wives here and it’s said the ghosts of two of his wives, Catherine and Jane Seymour, still live at the palace!!
    5. Shene
      The area was originally known as Shene but was later known by the name of the grandest local house Rychemonde Manor.

      The factory that makes the poppies sold to commemorate Remembrance Day is in Richmond, a high percentage of its staff are ex-servicemen, who have been wounded or are suffering the effects of active service.
