If you are interested in industrial heritage spots, the Richmond Lock and Footbridge is really nice. It dates back to 1894. You can also go for a little stroll along the Thames path. It is a lovely stretch of the path.

Take the boat from Richmond, the pier is across Gaucho Restaurant and enjoy a scenic trip on the boat. It will be open when summer arrives

Richmond lock and weir is located close to Richmond town centre and was first opened in 1894. The foot bridges are closed in the evenings. Really nice to walk down this part of the river Thames especially on clear warm afternoons.

Took a short walk from Richmond along the Thames ending at Richmond Lock & Weir. It would appear that it has recently been renovated & is very picturesque. A working Lock dating back to 1800's. Fascinating 😍

Great views at dawn over the river and the old lock and footbridge. This is really rewarding when on a morning run.
