Richmond has a rich and vibrant history and the month-long Heritage Festival this September gives locals the chance to find out more about the borough’s past and will include workshops, talks, walks and activities. You can find out how to research your house, question local historians, enjoy guided history walks around Twickenham riverside, Kew & Richmond. Talks will cover Horace Walpole, the poor in Richmond, Richmond Park’s South African Military Hospital and local author, Tracy Borman will explore Elizabeth I’s relationships with the women in her life, from her mother, Anne Boleyn, to the servants who served her.
