Foodie Tour # 5 – Richmond Upon Thames

The royal borough of Richmond attracts riverside tourists, history buffs and rugby fans. But it also has some tucked away foodie gems amongst all those leafy streets and parks! Gems that only a local would know, and that we are happy to share with you.

Your tour will start with a typically American treat from this popular American bakery, followed fresh Argentinian empanadas from the paved courtyards of Richmond. Next up, sample an exquisite hot chocolate and miso shortbread from this award winning Japanese inspired chocolatier.  Sample one of the best Italian pistachio gelato and sorbets from this authentic gelateria. A short walk across the green will lead us to a the old Richmond palace, once inhabited by King Henry VII, King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. See where the Queen would lay out her abundant collection of dresses, a wardrobe like no other! A gentle stroll up Richmond Hill will lead us to a local fromagerie, where we will try a selection of continental cheeses. A short walk onwards will bring us to the 18th century garden terraces and a stunning listed view over the Thames river.  Finish your tour with a classic English cream tea including a scone with jam, cream and a pot of tea, taken in a Georgian mansion set within the grounds of Richmond Park. If you’re lucky, you might catch sight of one of the 630 deer that roam freely in the park.

All of our tours come with a take away recipe pack, so you can recreate what you try at home.

This tour takes 2-3 hours and can be booked for the morning or afternoon, Monday – Sunday. As it is an area of natural beauty, it is best experienced on foot and may be weather dependant. It starts and finishes at Richmond station.
