    A really enjoyable day. I started out with backache and kept thinking I'd have to leave and get the bus home, but I'm so glad I stuck with it. Rather a long walk without a break, but a great group of people, interesting conversation and a nice boat trip to recover from the walk. Thanks Mike.

    Parking in Richmond is a nightmare and not practical for a day out. Not only is it very expensive, £2-£3 an hour, but street bays and car parks are limited to a maximum of four hours, if you can find a space. You can park longer at the station for £14 but there are only 55 spaces and it's a gamble as to whether there will be any room left at 10.30am. You can park at Ham Common (TW10 7JF) ‎for free and get the 65 bus, which runs every 8 minutes and takes under 15 minutes to Richmond station. But they easiest, cheapest and stress free option is to use public transport.
