Richmond Place was an early-Victorian terrace of houses with gardens to the front and rear, on the west side of Terminus Terrace. It was situated between Cambridge Street (later Duke Street) and Richmond Street and just north of Richmond Lodge. Some of the houses survived until after World War Two. It is one of 24 streets in Southampton listed in the Hampshire Advertiser of 6 April 1844 as having been built within the previous 15 months. It lay on land owned by Queen's College, Oxford which was developed for housing from 1841 onwards. The first three houses were built in continuation of a line with Richmond Lodge. The plans were drawn up in 1841 by the architect Charles Laver (died 17 May 1844) of 1061/2 High Street, Southampton. Richmond Place later became incorporated into Terminus Terrace.
