Hampton Court Palace, Richmond Park, Kew Gardens, Chessington World of Adventure and Wimbledon with its shops, village, common, windmill, Tennis courts and museum are close by. Raynes Park is on the borders of outer London and Surrey with its beautiful countryside. The easily accessed motorway routes open the opportunities of sightseeing further. Windsor Castle, Thorpe Park (a theme park, a delight for the young) and Brighton all offer a day’s outing. The Channel Tunnel is an hour and a half away by motorway, so a visit to France can make a pleasant day out.
