Our charity collects and preserves the unique heritage of Richmond Park, the largest of London’s Royal Parks, for all to enjoy.
We have a diverse range of heritage material covering the last four centuries, with some 5000 items including antique prints, paintings, maps, postcards, photographs, documents, books and press cuttings. These are being catalogued by volunteers from the Friends of Richmond Park.
The Collection, currently stored in unsatisfactory accommodation in Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, is overseen by volunteers and a small number of staff. Plans are well advanced for a new purpose-built heritage centre to provide full public access to the Collection.
To learn more about the Collection and our plans for the future please watch our video:
