A Day in Richmond Park | London

2:41 PM

Last weekend we went to visit Richmond Park in London for the first time and we were in awe. It is so beautiful that I just had to capture some moments and share them here with you, along with our experience walking through the park with our toddler.

The entrance we went through had a small playground made mostly of wood, which was so cute. Victor had a quick go on the slide and then we went on our little hike.

We walked towards the Isabella Plantation which is stunning. So lush and green everywhere you look. There are some ponds inside the plantation and I hear it's even more spectacular during spring when everything's in bloom, so we absolutely need to be here during that time next year.

We spent about 4 hours walking, but it didn't feel like a struggle until we got home and the feeling of sore feet kicked in.

Victor walked for most of it, but on the way back he got quite tired (obviously). Even my husband and I were tired, so I can only imagine what a workout that was for a little buddy. So he went in the pushchair for most of the walk back. I had plenty of snacks for him, homemade banana bread, squeeze pouches, biscuits, water etc. I actually think I should have brought more for us the parents too, because we also got quite hungry. Next time I'll try to be even more prepared.

I think the park is for the most part pushchair/stroller accessible. It was a bit more difficult to go through certain parts of the park, but for the most part it was alright. So if you have a toddler that's likely to get tired along the way, I think a pushchair or a toddler carrier are going to be very helpful.

We saw some deer in the distance too, but we didn't get super close to them. I think the deer walking along humans is one of the things that surprised me the most to see here. That and the foxes that we see from our flat window almost daily. Sometimes I feel like we live in the woods and not in London. Haha! :)

If you're new around here, I just moved to London with my husband and toddler and, in case you couldn't tell already, we're quite excited to be exploring the area. If you'd like to follow along, I made a whole bunch of YouTube videos about our big move.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse into Richmond Park with us. Have a wonderful day!
