The District Line: A journey Ealing Broadway – Richmond


I attended a lavish wedding at Pitshanger Manor near Ealing Broadway.

One day I travelled from Ealing Broadway, via Ealing Common, South Ealing, Chiswick Park to Turnham Green,

Enraptured by the beauty of Chiswick House that I visited nearby,

The most glorious stately home I have ever seen.

I fancied a trip to the Botanical Gardens at Kew,

In Kew Gardens I walked the treetops there,

I was seduced by the phenomenal natural beauty around me,

I felt invigorated by the refreshing tonic of the fresh Kew air.

At Richmond Station, I walked to the park,

Befriended and surrounded by deer,

I was headed towards the Thames Path,

It’s magnificence enticing me near.

The District Line serves 60 stations over 40 miles (64 km), and with bridges across the River Thames on the Wimbledon and Richmond branches it is the only Underground line to cross the river in this way. Here is the final instalment of the District line that I have written with the line ending up in Richmond, South West London - home to Richmond Park and the beloved deer that roam the grounds there.
