  • Visitor Information

Whittaker Avenue, the road on which Richmond's Old Town Hall stands is named after Sir John Whittaker Ellis, a former Lord Mayor of London and the first mayor for the new borough of Richmond. The Hall, built in the 1890s and opened in 1893 by the Duke of York, who later became King George V, stands on land donated by Whittaker. Overlooking the Thames, it now contains the major information services for the borough - the Reference Library, the Local Studies Collection and Richmond Information Centre as well as the Riverside Gallery, run by the Orleans House Gallery. On the second floor is the Museum of Richmond which houses the royal borough's important historical artefacts.
