Public notice: To help visitors take care of their health and protect others from the spread of Coronavirus we are taking a number of measures which will affect park services and facilities over coming weeks. Please see our updates page for the latest information.
No vehicle access to Richmond Park: Richmond Park is temporarily closed to vehicular traffic. Currently it is not possible to drive through or park in Richmond Park.
Cycling suspended in Richmond Park: Cycling in Richmond Park will be suspended until further notice to support the government's social distancing guidelines to stay two metres apart from others. This measure is designed to prevent crowds at park gates, which have recently become congested with visitors taking their daily exercise.

NHS workers with their staff passes and key workers approved by the Government (see list here) going directly to or returning from their place of work can also cycle through the Richmond Park upon presenting documentation from their employers. Those aged 12 years and under can also continue to cycle in the park. You can read our official press release here.
Isabella Plantation and Pembroke Lodge Gardens closed: The Isabella Plantation and Pembroke Lodge Gardens in Richmond Park are closed as it is difficult for people to stay 2m apart in these enclosed locations.
Richmond Park Golf Courses: The Richmond Park golf courses will reopen on Saturday 16th May.

Escape to the great outdoors in Richmond Park with its wide open spaces, grasslands and deer herds, just a stone’s throw from central London.

The park is a top UK site for ancient trees and supports a range of rare species including fungi, birds, beetles, bats, grasses and wildflowers.

Discover the Isabella Plantation woodland gardens, refuel at Pembroke Lodge tea rooms and enjoy distant views of St Paul’s Cathedral from King Henry’s Mound.

Try your hand at power kiting, horse riding or golf, or hire a bike for some off-road cycling along the Tamsin Trail.

We are the charity for London's eight amazing Royal Parks

We care for each of London's Royal Parks for everyone now and in the future to explore, value and enjoy.

Covering over 5,000 acres of historic parkland, the parks provide beautiful green spaces right in the heart of the capital where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city. They're a place for you to relax and unwind, exercise and clear your mind. If it's history and architecture you're after, we have hundreds of buildings, statues and memorials, giving a fascinating insight into London's heritage.
