The Village Green in Richmond

If you’ve never been to Richmond before and have just arrived here by train, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was just another ordinary slightly posh London suburb; it’s home to most of the high tree chain stores, loads of hairdressers and spas and some boutiques for the well-heeled.  That’s why you have to venture off the Quadrant and George Street and head to the Waterfront, Richmond Hill and the Green.  This latter patch of town is like a mini-village unto itself.  It’s arguably one of the best places to hang out on a warm summer afternoon.  But even in the depth of winter, it’s architecturally stunning and timeless and therefore comforting and romantic.
