Be at One with Richmond Park’s Nature

As we (slowly but surely) enter Spring, now’s the ideal time to catch the flowers blooming and the wildlife roaming at Richmond Park. Kill a couple hours with a quiet stroll through the largest of London’s Royal Parks and lap up what nature has to offer. Get lost in the park’s astonishing history, check out the view from King Henry’s Mound and spot the local deer and stags. Whether on foot or riding your bike, you’ll be surprised at what you might find!

Watch the Sun Set Over the River Thames

It may sound a little basic but as we enter Spring and the weather warms up, there truly is nothing better than watching the sun set over the Thames. Grab a gin and tonic or a pint of whatever you fancy, wind down and create the perfect end to the perfect Sunday. Not sure where to grab an evening drink? We recommend The White Cross – a pub with a stellar view.

What are you up to this Sunday?
