Bingham

We were extremely privileged to stay at the beautiful Bingham in Richmond-Upon-Thames recently, so we could check out the hotel and share our experience with you.

The Bingham is a unique, boutique hotel, located right on the banks of the River Thames by Richmond Bridge. This stunning Georgian townhouse has incredible views of the river, making it one of the most romantic locations for a wedding we have been to.

Bingham Exterior

The hotel has such charm and character, with beautiful rooms to enjoy. From the elegant entrance and reception area, to the relaxed, retro styled lounge bar, to the hotel restaurant that is so gorgeous you will want to sit there all day, taking in the views, and soaking up the sun that beams through the large windows. One of the wow factors (there are so many) is the delightful landscaped garden that the hotel looks out onto. From the garden is the river beyond, so imagine sitting out on the terrace with a cocktail, looking out at the garden and river; just delightful!

Bingham Terrace and Garden

We were invited to stay at the hotel in one of the Superior River Double rooms, which as the name suggests, looks out over the River Thames. The beautiful room is decorated with luxury furnishings, elegant drapes and the softest, most luxurious bedding. Complete with a fabulous shower and a spa bath (which of course had to be tested), this room is the perfect place to enjoy your wedding night, or even your honeymoon. If you have your wedding at Bingham you could stay in one of the bedrooms with a four-poster bed, for that little extra luxury on your special day.
