Richmond Park

Serpentine has a big presence in Richmond Park each Sunday as we use it for both running and cycling training.

The Friends of Richmond Park have launched a film about Richmond Park.presented and narrated by Sir David Attenborough. It has some excellent photography and narration by Sir David and, whilst showing the park in all its magnificence, it also invites viewers to help protect it and its wildlife for generations to come. There are 2 versions: a short 4min version and the full length film which is 21 minutes.


We meet in the car park next to Pembroke Lodge, near Richmond Gate (see the map below). There are toilets and refreshments on site, and water fountains on the route.
