Whilst staying in the area, I walked from the Meadows along the riverside path to Richmond Bridge. It was a beautiful walk on a sunny day, albeit rather a 'busy' one, with walkers, runners and cyclists everywhere.

Lovely and beautiful area to go for a stroll in. Petersham doesn’t feel like London and in the Meadows you feel like you are in the countryside m. Bliss!

This meadow is so beautiful with green grass and fat black and white cows. There were flowers everywhere in May.

Very pleasant walk from Richmond to Petersham, by the river and across the meadows with the belted galloways. Stopped at Petersham Nurseries, Definitly worth a stop, lovely cafe and plant related items. If I lived close by I would be a regular visitor.

On our way back to our hotel from a visit to Petersham Nursery’s we had to cross the meadows. Boots were a must as it was very muddy. Good views of the Thames as we crossed the meadows.

Great event on Saturday, Italian wine tasting. Very informative and relaxed. Six wines tasted over a couple of hours, well paced, great fun.

These water meadows provide a lovely view of the River Thames and they have cattle in from April to October. They also have a raised footpath now so you can keep your feet dry. If you walk across them continue through the gate at the...More

One of the best views of the river and the surround area is charming. Definitely the place to be to enjoy the river, the trees and meadow.
