Richmond, London, Greater London, England


Notes: Richmond is a town in south-west London, 8.2 miles (13.2km) west-southwest of Charing Cross. It is on a meander ofthe River Thames, with many parks and open spaces,including Richmond Park, and many protected conservationareas, which include much of Richmond Hill. A specific Actof Parliament protects the scenic view of the River Thamesfrom Richmond.[8]

Richmond was founded following Henry VII's building ofRichmond Palace in the 16th century, from which the townderives its name. (The palace itself was named afterHenry's earldom of Richmond, North Yorkshire.) During thisera the town and palace were particularly associated withElizabeth I, who spent her last days there. During the 18thcentury Richmond Bridge was completed and many Georgianterraces were built, particularly around Richmond Green andon Richmond Hill. These remain well preserved and many havelisted building architectural or heritage status. Theopening of the railway station in 1846 was a significantevent in the absorption of the town into a rapidlyexpanding London.
