Bushy Park is the second largest of London's eight Royal Parks. Bushy Park is located in the borough of Richmond-upon-Thames close to Hampton Court Palace.

Formerly deer-hunting grounds for King Henry VIII, Bushy Park still has large populations of Red and Fallow deer.

Later Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of St Paul's Cathedral, added Chestnut Avenue which runs to the entrance to Hampton Court.

Bushy Park is home to a number of sports clubs including rugby, hockey and cricket.
