One of the most charismatic of London's districts, Richmond receives millions of visitors each year - yet there is surprisingly little written about this fascinating area. Joanna Jackson's book explores Richmond over the course of a year, capturing every aspect of the town, from its fabulous Georgian terraces and almshouses to its pubs, park and riverside. She also delves into the area's rich history, telling many stories of its associations through the ages with royalty, pop music and rugby. The meticulously researched text and stunning original photographs combine to make the perfect tribute to this most charming of London's villages.

This is a full guide to Richmond, including its history, architecture, park, river and life today. Year-round photography reveals the town in all its moods. It is a perfect buy for any visitor to the area. Every year an estimated 5 million visit Richmond Park alone, designated a National Nature Reserve (one of only two in London).
