Things to Do — By Erin Gallagher Maury on October 15, 2010 at 3:38 pm

It’s doubtful when you think of London you would imagine a park with 650 free roaming Red and Fallow deer, but indeed it exists. Richmond Park, the largest of the 8 Royal Parks in London, is nearly 2,500 acres of lush green space and has a 700 year old history. In 1625 King Charles I walled the park for primarily deer hunting purposes. Today is serves as one of London’s prime recreational grounds.
