Where to Stay in Richmond

Richmond is a London borough on the city periphery that shares its borders with the county of Surrey - one of the UK’s most affluent areas. Whilst it is just a short journey to the city - under 30 minutes by train - Richmond undoubtedly shares a similar ambiance and aesthetic to a typical town of the home counties. Those deciding whereabouts to stay in the borough will need to consider the nature of their trip. For example, those wishing for quick access to central London are best off finding accommodation close to the main rail station - perhaps along Church Road or near the quadrant. This area is also where most of the shops and amenities of Richmond are to be found.

Fortunately, TheSqua.re’s Richmond apartments are ideally situated to offer the perfect balance of tranquillity and convenience with regards to public transport.
