My only previous visit to Richmond Park was that Christmas Eve (2019) I decided to cycle to my parents' place to avoid crossing a picket line on the trains. Rushing through at the golden hour in winter, in head-to-toe lycra and trying to avoid getting wiped out by oncoming cars, was probably not the best way to experience the place. So I had good fun there yesterday, at high summer with a leisurely wander over around five hours. I got to see the protected view of St. Paul's from King Edward's Mound that was infamously ruined by the fugly Manhattan Loft Gardens tower in Stratford (actually very close to me—I have to look at it every time I go to the shops.) I even got to see some deer. Please enjoy these photos.
