Wouldn't really go out of the way to visit it, but interesting to see as part of a stroll along the river. The riverside path from Richmond towards Kew or the other way towards Petersham are both lovely.

Walk across the Thames
Sep 2018 • Couples
This lock provides not only the lock facilities for boats on the Thames, but also a route for walkers across the river. Take a selfie photo in the middle. Lovely views each way

A leisurely way to return to Richmond looking at all the beautiful houses. Boat on the old side but staff cheerful and helpful.

Industrial heritage and Thames path
Apr 2018 • Solo
If you are interested in industrial heritage spots, the Richmond Lock and Footbridge is really nice. It dates back to 1894. You can also go for a little stroll along the Thames path. It is a lovely stretch of the path.

Great attraction
Oct 2017 • Couples
Richmond lock and weir is located close to Richmond town centre and was first opened in 1894. The foot bridges are closed in the evenings. Really nice to walk down this part of the river Thames especially on clear warm afternoons.

i lived at the Lock
Aug 2017 • Solo
I lived at the lock from 1959 to 1967.
My Dad Frank Brown was lock keeper at Richmond from 1959 untill 1973.
I am the only one to be married from the.lock house where the cars came down the tow path in order for me to get to the church. that was on the 19th September 1964.
Then on 3rd August 1965 my Son was born at the house, again the only one to be born at the house.
I now live in Australia but was in England this year 2017 and went back to see the lock.
The Lock keeper Mark was really good and allowed me to have a look inside the house.
Which was great ti see again after all these years.

My Father died in 1973 at the age of 49.
