A wide range of sports are available in Richmond Park, from informal kickabouts to horse-riding to club rugby.

Informal sport in the Park

At weekends and during holiday periods, the park frequently attracts visitors for informal sports. For many, the extent of sporting activity during their visit is limited to a kickabout with a football or a game of French cricket before or after a picnic. For others, the attraction is the network of roads and designated paths for cycling.

In season, the wooded areas and hill climbs in the park offer unrivalled opportunities this close to Central London for orienteering and cross-country running.

The park is open from 7am in the summer, and 7.30am in winter, closing at dusk all year round. Call 0300 061 2200 for more information.

Plan a day's sport

Perhaps you'd like to play a game of rugby. A section of the grassland to the north of the Roehampton Gate is maintained and laid out for rugby and accommodates 3 adult pitches.

At weekends, this area is hired extensively to Rosslyn Park Rugby Football Club. The club buses visiting teams to and from the park pitches from its nearby clubhouse and changing rooms.

There are opportunities for horse riding in the park through a number of local stables.

If you prefer to provide your own propulsion, Richmond Park offers an interesting and varied cycling experience, from the flattest roads to hilly climbs for the more dedicated pedal pusher.

Others may wish to head toward the two 18-hole golf courses, together with a 16-bay driving range, a large Pro shop, and clubroom with changing facilities. In addition, there is a car park and a nearby cafe

Cycling

Cycle hire is available through Parkcycle from 10am until 7pm on weekends and school holidays and from 10am until 5pm on weekdays outside holidays.

The Parkcycle centre is located in the car park near Roehampton Gate during the summer. At selected peak times a secondary hire point is available in the car park adjacent to Pembroke Lodge. The main Parkcycle centre at Roehampton sells a range of essential cycling accessories.
