We spent our Sunday afternoon in the leafy suburb of Richmond and it’s magnificent Richmond Park, the largest of the capital’s eight Royal Parks. It was nice to escape the city heat and get some proper fresh air. We also met some of the park’s residents, the wild Red and Fallow deer.
The Isabella Plantation is a 40-acre woodland garden set within a Victorian woodland plantation planted in the 1830’s. First opened to the public in 1953, it is best known for its evergreen azaleas, which line the ponds and streams and the peak time to visit is late April and early May.
