For something a bit different this Father’s Day why not take the opportunity to get out of the centre of London? Guaranteed there will be queues for the usual London haunts like The Natural History Museum and The London Eye so for real quality time with your old man the best bet is to head to the borough of Richmond upon Thames. Just a hop away on the district line or London overground service, you’ll feel like you’ve taken a holiday from the hustle and bustle of London’s tourist hotspots. Taking a walk along the Thames canal and (fingers crossed) soaking up the sun is a far nicer way to spend a Sunday afternoon.Verge off from the canal path and join up with the high street via this idyllic country scene. Once you’ve well and truly stomped around the town reward yourselves with a well-deserved meal at one of the lively pubs on Richmond Green. Surely there’s no better way to treat your Dad than by getting a round in?
