Ranelagh Harriers Location Maps
Richmond is situated on the banks of the river Thames, about 15 miles upstream
of London. It was the weekend retreat of the Kings and Queens of England,
before they developed Hampton Court (further up the Thames) and then Windsor.
It still has many Royal associations. Richmond Park, where we do most of our
running, was the deer park belonging to the Royal Palace at Richmond.
Descendants of deer introduced by King Charles II still roam in the park. To
get to this area - south-west of the centre of London - travel from Waterloo
station by British rail or take the Underground. Follow the map below once you
get to Richmond.
