Best Hotels in Richmond

Richmond Introduction

A leafy borough of southwest London, Richmond sits along a bend of the Thames, with waterfront walks and vast royal parks. The centre is a shopping haven, with lots of upmarket British brands found in charming boutiques and lots of laid-back cafes. However, you're also close to big areas of parkland and unspoiled woods, where you can spot deer and other wildlife roaming freely.

Hotels in Richmond

There's a large selection of hotels in Richmond, and its close proximity to the capital means they're suitable for either business or a relaxing break. Most Richmond hotels have 3 or 4-stars, offering comfortable accommodation that's a great base to explore from. Many of the grand country estates have been turned into hotels, with features such as indoor pools, fitness suites and restaurants on-site. These Georgian properties have nicely sized guest rooms, with features such as free WiFi, climate control and premium bedding for a comfortable night's sleep. Some Richmond hotels also include an English breakfast, so you can get ready for a day of exploring.

Where to stay

The Georgian shops in Richmond's town centre may have been overtaken by designer boutiques, but there's still a historic vibe. The Quadrant runs from the Tube station to the river, a busy road where red buses and black cabs make up a lot of the traffic. Lining this popular shopping street are lots of upmarket British shops, with stylish cafes where you can refuel. The waterfront area has cobbled streets and traditional inns, where you can enjoy a pint while you watch boats on the Thames. Here you'll find many of the luxury hotels in Richmond, which are just steps away from the town's leafy parks.

Things to see

Richmond Park dates back to the 17th century, and this royal park covers almost 4 square miles of conservation land. Originally a deer park, it is full of natural beauty, from a serene brook to ancient trees. Take one of the nature trails and you'll spot red deer running through meadows, birds of prey in the trees and wild rabbits scurrying across the park. A favourite attraction in Richmond reviews is Kew Gardens, a botanical garden with one of the world's largest and most diverse collections. Stepping inside the grand Victorian conservatory is like being transported to the rainforest, with a humid atmosphere supporting palm trees and fragrant exotic flowers, and a large pond with waterlilies. Outside is 300 acres of parkland, with neat flowerbeds, floral archways and endless shady pathways to explore.
