*History lesson* Richmond Park is the largest of the Royal Parks covering 2,500 acres. Royal connections to this park probably go back further than any of the others, beginning with Edward I in 1299 when the area was known as The Manor of Sheen. This name was changed to Richmond during Henry VII’s reign and in 1625 Charles I brought his court to Richmond Palace to escape the plague and turned it into a park for red and fallow deer. #royalparks .org
