Chiswick and Richmond: London’s answer to the Loire Valley!
A third of the trilogy of villages. This area, a riverside area, to the South-West, is completely different from the port areas to the SE!. This is London’s Arcadia. Unpolluted. Bucolic. I know, you reader, you don’t believe me…
We are going to make our way along a maze of narrow, twisting streets… Lined with Georgian and Victorian buildings… The parish church, in the middle. A large Green, to one side. The site of the ancient Royal Palace. After attending Shakespeare’s performance, Elizabeth I died (no, no, it wasn’t the bard’s fault).
A Victorian public house became a 60s trendy club: the Beatles met here the Rolling. Stones!.
Great shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs…all along. Celebrated (by poets and painters) views and a huge Royal Park.
And, after our tour, you will be visiting museums, aristocratic houses or English National rugby stadium. Or just sipping a tea I one of the coffee shops where the locals chill out…
Or, what about visiting a brewery?
