The Richmond Harbour Hotel & Spa, set in a newly restored and renovated 18th Century period property, is the ideal base for those wanting to explore the extraordinary sights of London, whilst escaping its hustle and bustle. Tranquil and charismatic Richmond is in London’s southwest, famed for its royal park which offers guests a retreat with excellent access to London & its many attractions.
This luxury boutique hotel, at the top of Richmond Hill is feet from Richmond Park itself and a short stroll to the many independent boutiques and top-notch restaurants of Richmond’s town centre. An extensive refurbishment programme has now transformed the hotel, introducing fun, vibrant décor throughout, in-keeping with the Harbour Hotel’s signature style.
For food and drink during your stay, our newly-opened restaurant ‘The Gate, Kitchen, Bar, Terrace’ is an all-day modern brasserie serving light, seasonal and contemporary dining. The light-filled main dining room, with its striking interiors of vivid colour and bold patterns, opens up onto an atmospheric internal courtyard terrace; a vibrant bar serves up seriously good cocktails. It’s a relaxed, neighbourhood vibe, in keeping with Richmond’s own unique character.
For those wanting to get out and about, the stunning Richmond Park is moments away as is the Thames River with its stunning waterside walks. The world-famous Kew Gardens is just 10-minutes by taxi or tube; Twickenham stadium, home of English rugby, and Wimbledon Tennis Championships are a 20-minute taxi ride each; as well as Hampton Court, the former home of Henry VIII, is also just a 20-minute taxi ride away.
Central London, with its unrivalled West End shows, museums, and historic landmarks, is a mere 30 minutes by train.
