Richmond Hill Hotel launches Picnic in the Park delegate lunch option

Richmond Park
The Grade II listed Richmond Hill Hotel is using its unique position adjacent to Richmond Royal Park to provide delegates with its new Picnic in the Park service. This alternative to a networking lunch will allow conference and meeting guests a chance to kick back out of the classroom confines in 2500-acres of green space. 

Each hamper will contain delicious picnic favourites from freshly made sandwiches and homemade sweet treats to healthy snacks and refreshing soft drinks.  

Diane Tapner-Evans, General Manager said:  “Hotels have long differentiated themselves on the fact their meeting rooms have natural daylight. We have these and one of the most recognisable views in abundance therefore we want to go one step further by acknowledging that delegates want to soak up our surroundings.  We are quite literally bringing 'blue sky thinking' to life by encouraging delegates to network outside and clear their heads during lunch.”   

The hotel is mere yards from the famous Richmond Terrace, boasting fabled views over the park and the River Thames and since 2012 has received close to £6 million pounds capital investment including the refurbishment of its meeting spaces and more recently the update of over half of its guests rooms, due for completion in July this year.  

Due to its location the hotel has been used by many Blue Chip companies for both one day events and longer term training programmes.  The hotel's ballroom has capacity for up to 180 theatre-style and 220 for a private dinner and is complemented by further breakouts for between 30 and 75 people.  A selection of intimate rooms are also available and can seat from 8 up to 14 people boardroom-style. 

Richmond Hill Hotel has been a longstanding host for event planners looking for an easy escape from the capital while still being on the London Transport infrastructure.  Located near Richmond Station, on the district line and mainline services to London Waterloo, Richmond Hill Hotel is only eight miles from Central London, London’s West End and Heathrow Airport.
