Wildflowers growing in Richmond Park. I was always surprised by the number of Londoners who were either unaware of, or who had simply never been to, Richmond Park. A gigantic, sprawling park in the south west part of the city, Richmond Park is like stepping out of the city and into the countryside. It is perhaps best known for it’s semi-tame deer population which allows for many beautiful photos. Feeding the deer or getting within 50 meters of one for any reason is forbidden.
