London photos: Richmond Park deer


I’ve been wanting to go to Richmond Park since I’ve been here in London, and I finally got there this past weekend.

Richmond is a royal park, so the deer all belong to the Queen and are protected from hunting and all other harassment. So they have no fear of humans. I don’t know who this lady is, but this is just to show how close they let us get to them:

You probably wouldn’t want to get too close anyway:

    We have a huge Deer population in Ontario as well. Unfortunately they like to wander onto the highway in the early morning. I’ve had a few close calls with deer that look about as startled as I feel.

  • I’m pretty sure the area where the deer hang out in Richmond is surrounded by fencing, so I think they can’t wander into the roads…

    Well they like to follow the Thames outside of London so their commute intersects mine on several points. It’s likely even more of a problem around Stratford. Of course there’s no hunting that close to London so the occasional collision won’t hamper their population much.
