Despite Sunday being a really busy day the way the paths and borders are laid out there's no feeling of over crowding. The plants and wildlife are very obviously cared for and respected by the wardens. I didn't see any litter bins, but equally I...More

We always go to Richmond Park each time we return to the UK. This time, on my Mother’s 80th birthday, we went to Isabella and she was in full bloom. The colours and scents were glorious. A perfect temperature too.

Great part of Richmond Park to visit. Beautifully laid out & well maintained. Toilet facilities are great. Would be lovely if there was somewhere to get a cup of tea / ice cream!

There's a little window of opportunity to see Isabella in full bloom and that's right about now. It's a spectacular sight. Get there early to avoid the crowds.

Lovely walk beautiful flowers. Have been many times. What a shame the far pond is so stinky and most of the ducks have gone. You can smell it from 40 yards.

I looked up things to do in London and happened about Isabella Plantation that is supposed to be the most beautiful in the first few weeks of May. Since I can always come back to London to see the museums, but I don't know if...More

Best to visit here when the Azaleas and Rhododendrons come into bloom in the last weeks of April/first weeks of May. Then again, this is the busiest time at the plantation so if you prefer a less crowded walk head here another time - it's...More

They weren't when I visited last (over a month ago) - I imagine with the recent weather they should be now.
