Welcome to Richmond Athletic Ground (The RAG)
Richmond Athletic Ground (The RAG) is Richmond’s largest and most historic venue based in the heart of the town. It benefits from fantastic public transport links, being just five minutes from Richmond Station with fast trains to Waterloo, Clapham Junction and Reading, as well as being served by the Overground and District Line. Our two versatile and welcoming function rooms are available for hire as a meeting, training and conference venue. They are also very popular as a place for parties, celebrations, wakes and weddings.
Our spacious grounds are the ideal place for a Richmond film unit base or film crew parking and we are a choice venue for advertising and magazine photoshoots. The RAG also hosts the Annual Richmond Fireworks Display and hosts the highly popular Summer Social event and Oktoberfest, all of which see thousands of people in attendance.
Of course, with a name like Richmond Athletic Ground, there is a rich history of sporting excellence here at the ground. The venue is home to Richmond Rugby and
London Scottish Rugby clubs and the base for a number of world-class Rugby Sevens tournaments such as the Lloyds 7s, schools and other sporting events.
