With the school holidays fast approaching here is a quick round up of things to do with the kids in the Richmond area this summer. Balancing everything these days is tough. So we’ve looked for days out that are free or won’t break the bank.
Here are some great activity ideas that will keep the kids busy and keep the grown ups happy too:
WIDE OPEN SPACES
Richmond has many great green spaces, all free and all huge! There are usually cafes and kids areas in some, and in others, herds of deer to keep them distracted! Places like Richmond Green, The Old Deer Park and of course Richmond Park are all extremely popular, great for picnics but big enough to avoid the crowds!
You can read our list of favourite local ‘green space’ recommendations here.
THE RICHMOND MYSTERY TREASURE TRAIL
The kids can be detectives and join the treasure trail around Richmond. It’s great fun and ideal for kids over four years. It’s £9.99 per child but it is over two hours and great fun.
You can find out all you need to know and book here.
Ham House is a magnificent National Trust property right on our door step. It’s open generally daily during summer and costs £14 per adult and £7 per child. The gardens and outdoor spaces are beautiful and there is a cafe and toilets.

What if we told you there were more local markets in the area than you could shake a stick at!
There are seven to visit and they all offer something different. East Sheen market provides lots of fun and things to do and we just love Twickenham Farmers Market every Saturday just behind Marks and Spencer.
Find out all about the local markets with times, dates and a run down of whats happening here.
If you search for things to do in Richmond many of these recommendations will come up. The area has something for everyone and as you can see there are lots of things to do for free or on a minimal budget.
We wish you an enjoyable summer!
