Richmond Park

Opening Times

Parkcycle is open all year around although there are some days which we close (such as Christmas Day and when the park closes for the Ride London cycle event). The daily opening times do vary by season with the year is split into Low, Mid and High Seasons.

The calendar below indicates the approximate opening times by season. Times can vary within this depending on the park’s closing time and the weather.

On Monday through to Wednesday (inclusive) in low season, if the weather is poor we may be closed all day (so please check the twitter news feed for up to date information on opening times).

On the days we are open in low season Parkcycle may close early should the weather be inclement, if you are planning to arrive later in the day and the weather is poor please check the twitter news feed or call to check.

Note that the last one hour cycle hire is always at the latest around 90 minutes prior to the park's official closing time.

Richmond Park is open to vehicles from 7:00am in the summer and 7:30am in the winter. Vehicle gates close at dusk all year round. (View vehicle gate opening / closing times here)"

Pedestrian gates are open 24 hours except during the deer cull in November and February. During these months, pedestrian gates open at 7:30am and close at 8:00pm.
