Why Richmond Park?

Richmond Park is the biggest park in London with over 2,500 acres to explore. It's been home to roaming deer since 1637! Dogs are allowed off the lead but make sure your recall training is at it's strongest in case of an encounter with deer...

Whilst you're there you should give the Isabella Plantation a visit. The plantation is an ornamental garden, designed to be full of exotic plants all year round. Dogs must be kept on the lead here. There are plenty of cafes you can stop off at for a coffee and a water bowl for your dog including the Roehampton Cafe and the Pembroke Lodge kiosk (right next to the free parking... and Pembroke Lodge itself!)
