With dinosaurs (statues), a maze, it’s own farm, a museum, terraces and a boating lake there’s plenty to keep you amused.
A guide to South London wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Richmond Park. The biggest royal park in London and home to many free roaming deer it really is a great place to spend an afternoon, offering plenty of open space for games of fetch!
