Old Palace Lane

Old Palace Lane is arguably Richmond’s most historic street. Many of the changes and developments that have made Richmond what it is today are reflected in this quiet little lane leading down to the Thames.

Old Palace Lane: Medieval to Modern Richmond by Derek Robinson and Simon Fowler, published with the Museum of Richmond in 2017, http://premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/antibiotics/ tells the story of the Lane, the people who have lived there, and its buildings. It is now out of print, but we hope to reissue it in summer 2019.

If you have a smartphone you can download the Museum of Richmond’s audio guide, and listen to Bamber Gascoigne’s narration while exploring Old Palace Lane on foot.
