Richmond is the largest and oldest of London's Royal Parks, a sylvan oasis in the capital whose sweeping acres offer uninterrupted views of St Paul's Cathedral 12 miles away. This attractive volume charts its history from the creation of the medieval deer park to the present, explores its palace, lodges and other buildings, and examines its ecology and wildlife. The 32 pages of colour plates show how artists have captured its beauty through the centuries.
