The Borough still has the largest Royal Park in London, whose deer are now semi-tame after hunting ceased around a hundred years ago. Richmond Palace was built by Henry V11 in 1501 and became a popular out of town royal residence. Anne of Cleves acquired it as part of her divorce settlement and it was a favourite retreat for Elizabeth the First, who enjoyed hunting in the Park.
After demolition of the Palace following the execution of Charles the First, the Gatehouse remains the most notable survivor. Subsequent building in a range of styles over the centuries has created the desirable Richmond of today.

Did you know about Richmond?
Richmond is an affluent town in south west London, England, and is part of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Historically part of Surrey, it is located 8.2 miles (13.2 km) west-southwest of Charing Cross. Richmond is a much sought after residential location, and among the wealthiest areas in the United Kingdom. It is also a significant commercial and upmarket retail centre, and has a developed day and evening economy. The town is located on a meander of the River Thames, with a large number of parks and open spaces, including Richmond Park, and many protected conservation areas. Richmond is noted for its high quality of life, as well as its affluence, and has been assessed as one of the happiest places in which to live in the UK.
The area now known as Richmond was formerly part of Shene. Shene was not listed in Domesday Book, although it is depicted on the associated maps as Sceon, its Saxon spelling. Henry I lived briefly in the King's house in "Sheanes". In 1299 Edward I "Hammer of the Scots", took his whole court to the manor-house at Sheen, a little east of the bridge and on the riverside, and it thus became a royal residence; William Wallace was executed in London in 1305, and it was in Sheen that the Commissioners from Scotland went down on their knees before Edward.
The founding and naming of Richmond followed the Tudor building of Richmond Palace early in the 16th century. During this era the town and palace were particularly associated with Elizabeth I. During the 18th century Richmond Bridge was completed and many Georgian terraces were built, particularly around Richmond Green and on Richmond Hill. These remain well preserved and many now have listed building status. The opening of the railway station in 1846 was a significant event in the absorption of the town into a rapidly expanding London.
