The Original Maids of Honour Bed and Breakfast newly refurbished room with a distinctly 1930′s charm.

The space
Vintage Lodgings is a self-catering studio apartment individually designed in a retro 1930’s style, complete with authentic décor and furnishings. Staying here is a quintessentially English experience.

With its own entrance ‘Vintage Lodgings’ is located above the historic ‘Original Maids of Honour’ shop and restaurant, where they have been baking and serving Afternoon teas for over 120 years.

The ‘Original Maids of Honour’ boasts a history almost as long and colourful as the area that surrounds it. Established in 1837, the original Victorian building was bombed in World War 2 and rebuilt in the 1940s. The original family quarters now serve as boutique accommodation for traditional British holiday break with style. More information about The Original Maids of Honour is here.

Your stay includes in the price a welcome Cream Tea or equivalent on arrival and one of our famous 'Original Maids of Honour' tarts in our historic tea room (or in the apartment) and our full breakfast menu (English and Continental fare) in the morning or we allow you to swap it for a packed lunch, picnic or supper left in your room.

FREE WI-FI + TV With Freeview also we are pet-freindy to well-behaved pets.

Guest access
Other unique details include a luxurious roll top bath, fresh linen and towels – and delicious breakfasts and lunches served downstairs in the world famous ‘The Original Maids of Honour’ restaurant and bakery.

Location

Richmond, England, United Kingdom

Kew is the ideal base for visiting London. You are only 30 minutes away (District line tube) from central London and it’s many attractions, and you can also explore the quieter delights of Kew and bustling Richmond.

Within 10 minutes walk of Vintage Lodgings you will find over 20 places to eat and drink – ranging from cafes that transform to elegant Thai restaurants in the evening to Michelin starred restaurants or pubs overlooking the River Thames. Just ask us when you arrive and we’ll be able to direct you to somewhere suitable.

Opposite Vintage Lodgings is the world famous Kew Gardens where you relax and explore over 300 acres of land and magnificent glasshouses containing over 40,000 species of plants and trees.

Approximately 10 minute walk away are The National Archives (formally the Public Record Office) which you can visit to examine over 900 years of historical records. It’s got a museum containing items such as the Domesday book.

Again about 10 minutes walk away and a personal favourite is Kew Bridge Steam Museum, housing some of the largest working steam engines in the world. It’s also got London’s only working steam train.

If you’d like to go shopping the individual shops of Kew Village are close by with about 30 different shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. If you are visiting on the first Sunday of a month, be sure to visit Kew Village Market, one of London’s friendliest street markets.

Richmond with it’s larger selection of shops, restaurants and riverside pubs is a short bus or tube ride away (or a very nice walk along the river). Richmond is also the home of Richmond Park, London’s largest green space, with bikes for hire, numerous walks and over 650 deer to try and count.
