Few little facts about Richmond
Richmond is town in the London and principal settlement of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in Surrey.
The area now known as Richmond was formerly part of Shene until about five centuries ago, but Shene was not listed in the Domesday Book, although it is depicted on the map as Sceon, which was its Saxon spelling in 950AD. Henry I lived briefly in the King's house in Sheanes. In 1299 Edward I "Hammer of the Scots", took his whole court to the manor-house at Sheen.
Richmond has an enviable reputation as a district of London that enjoys an abundance of attractive features, and accordingly it has acted as a magnet for royalty, visitors and notable residents for many centuries. Richmond Hill, The River Thames, Richmond Park, Richmond Palace, Old Deer Park, Richmond Green - these are the main natural and historic attributes that set this relatively small town apart from almost all others within the capital. As always, property values reflect the circumstances.
