Things To Do In Richmond

Totally Richmond is the local guide to the Borough of Richmond upon Thames (from Hampton to Barnes and everything in between), created and run by locals.

Next match at Twickenham Stadium is Sat 28 Nov - London Double Header 2015 - 3:15pm (see all fixtures).

Richmond Bridge

We’ve had various photos of Richmond Bridge on the home page of our site ever since we launched. Although it’s highly recognisable, I think very few of us really know much about it. So, like many of my previous posts, I’m learning as I write… and hopefully you might pick up a few new snippets ...

Review of Skinglow Beauty

Fireworks Around Richmond 2015

London Borough of Richmond upon Thames

Richmond upon Thames was named so in 1963 despite Twickenham having twice the population of the town of Richmond and also being the home of the Borough Council offices.  There's often confusion between the town of Richmond and the Borough of Richmond upon Thames, and some people differentiate by incorrectly referring to Richmond Surrey.
