About Hotel The Petersham

Hotel The Petersham, set in a quaint Victorian house and a five-minute walk from Richmond Park, makes for a tranquil country base for visitors to central London or for travellers to and from Heathrow Airport, 12 kilometres away.

The traditional en-suite bedrooms and suites, decorated with luxury wallpaper and elegant furnishings, bring to life the opulent late 19th-century feel of the estate. Some rooms offer stunning riverside views of the Thames or the Surrey countryside.

Hotel The Petersham also makes a unique setting for business and personal events with five flexible meeting rooms and suites.

The award-winning cuisine of the restaurant should taste even richer in the pleasant and bright dining area, offering exceptional views of a famous bend in the river Thames through its floor-to-ceiling windows.

Central London can be reached in just half an hour from Richmond railway and underground station, just 1500 metres away. Ham House is under ten minutes away by car and Kew Gardens under five kilometres away.
