I have been spending the first few days of my trip to London in the beautiful area of Richmond which is situated alongside the river Thames. Richmond houses a vast array of stunning old buildings and architecture, and with its location next to the Thames and Richmond park it has a casual village feel - and you would have no idea you were just outside of bustling London!
Richmond centre with the old red telephone boxes and of course a local pub!
