Richmond Park, the largest of the Royal Parks, is a countryside treasure within the city of London. A short trip from central London has you running on hilly dirt trails through forests and fields. The most popular route in Richmond Park is the perimeter loop on the Tamsin Trail but a network of trails offer countless options. If you venture in to the heart of the park you will likely meet some of the deer that live there. Toilets, water fountains and cafes are plentiful, making Richmond Park the ideal place for any type of run. Our route starts and finishes at the Roehampton Gate where you will find a café for a post-run snack. For a more formal lunch try the Pembroke Lodge.

What Others Are Saying
Richmond Park: a huge open space close to the city which is amazing for running and cycling. It's approximately 11 km in circumference and has the most amazing wildlife to see along the way. The stags and deer are the main attraction
Richmond Park is my favourite. It's ideal for running and feels like proper countryside within easy reach of central London.
Most of the park is fairly hilly, the main trail around the outer edge is 7 miles, but there's lots of others crisscrossing the way too. Plenty of wildlife to see, including deer. There's toilets, water stops and cafes along the way too.
