While the Richmond neighborhood is very posh, upscale, bucolic and scenic … it is also technically part of London. You’d never know it from looking around since all of the typical center-city icons are missing.
And still, tourists flock here in droves.
When I arrived, the weather was “extraordinary” by UK standards – hot and sunny, with blue skies. This is not typical (not even in summer) so the locals took advantage of it too.
Here are a few snaps of Richmond on Thames…

A view of the bend in the Thames River from the top of Richmond Hill
The Old Ship – charming British pub in downtown Richmond (I didn’t go inside)
Interesting European Architecture – view from the top of Richmond Hill
What do the locals do when it’s hot and sunny? Lay on the grass, look at the river, and drink lots of beer!
