London map

I thought it would be useful to post a map of London showing where we live. Our burough is Richmond, located in Southwest London and south of the Thames river. We are aproximately one quarter mile from London's Richmond Park which is about the same size as Central Park in Manhattan or 7.2 miles in diameter for those runners amongst us - it also has a history dating back to 1272 and is where Charles I brought his Court to escape the plague in 1625. Otherwise the neighborhood is very English with a large American and European ex-patriot community; it is also the home of Mick Jagger and is where the Stones and The Who got their start
