The Holly Lodge Centre
How to find us
The Centre is located within the Park at Holly Lodge, which is the administration centre of the Park. It is down a small lane approximately half way between the Richmond and Sheen Gates, and signposted as ‘Holly Lodge’. When guests arrive at the Centre they must register at reception before entering the complex, and then wear the ID provided.
Reception is reached through the wooden gate into the garden of Holly Lodge (an 18th century farmhouse) to the left of the short-stay car park. No one may enter the yard behind until they have registered.
