The Richmond Hill offers a stunning view from the top terrace (between Friar Stile Road and Nightingale Lane) which is protected by an act of parliament and takes in the river, the meadows at the bottom of the hill. It has inspired writers as well as artists such as JMW Turner to capture its beauty on canvas. It is a short walk up the hill and on the way to Richmond Park if you are walking from the town.
