The Bingham Riverhouse has reopened after the month-long overhaul.
The work has seen each of the 15 guest rooms transformed, alongside the dining rooms and bar; with a wash of pale pastels balanced with modern jewel tones, to perfectly echo their famous views out over the Thames.
Following a full refurbishment by award-winning interior designer Nicola Harding, the new Bingham Riverhouse has become a harmonious mix between easy living and private members house; a concept yet to be seen in Richmond.
All 15 bedrooms have also been reawakened to make the most of the incredible river views.
The Riverhouse menu has been revived under the direction of award-winning head chef Andrew Cole; leading the team on seasonally changing menus that showcase the best of local produce.
Originally built as two Georgian houses, from 1899, the property saw previous dwellers Katherine Bradley and Edith Cooper pen poems and plays under the famous pseudonym Michael Field; the house instantly became a literary hub and visitors including W.B Yeats flocked.
In 1984, the Trinder family acquired the property and it remains to this day in the care of mother and daughter, Ruth and Samantha Trinder.
Samantha explained: “I grew up in what was my parents’ bed and breakfast in the eighties and in the noughties I was lucky enough to be given a free rein by my mother, a formidable Kenyan business woman, to transform it into Richmond’s first boutique hotel.
“As my journey has unfolded, I’m inspired to reconnect the Bingham with its history, to be a place for all to be themselves.”
