Richmond-upon-Thames is the only London Borough that spans the River Thames, and Richmond Bridge – built 1777 – is the oldest of all London’s bridges that remains close to its original design. The geography is a little curvy here, like the river – the north end of the bridge is on the south side of the river.
On the north (town) side is the broad tow-path seen here, lined with cafés and upmarket restaurants, and more than a few decent pubs. Richmond has a certain village character; walk up the narrow high street, into Water Lane and down to the river; watch the sunset – and watch your waistline.
