MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR VISIT
Pre theatre dining
Richmond Theatre on the Green is a historic local theatre that offers West End entertainment. Many of the new shows preview at Richmond prior to reaching the stage in the West End. Groups of ten or more are entitled to a ticket discount and we can arrange an early supper or cocktails and canapés in one of The Petersham’s elegant rooms before the performance.
A trip down memory lane
Between April and October there are boat services between Richmond and Hampton Court Palace (approx. 1 hour). Take a trip down the River Thames followed by traditional afternoon tea at The Petersham. The River Room, for larger numbers, is ideal with its own private terrace overlooking the Thames.
