Pembroke Lodge

A unique Grade II listed Georgian Mansion situated at the highest point of the largest Royal Park within London.
Pembroke Lodge has been lovingly restored by The Hearsum Family Limited to provide two fully fitted banqueting suites and award winning tea rooms.

The only licensed venue within a London Royal Park

Located in 11 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with outstanding photographic opportunities and spectacular views over the Thames Valley

We have hosted weddings for over 50 years and are one of very few venues offering a truly complete service from a very experienced team

Our team includes three full time Wedding administrators able to assist with any planning aspects of your day and three Banqueting managers who host the main meetings, tastings and weddings (being present on the day from start to finish whilst acting as Master of Ceremonies)

Richmond Park is one of the most treasured open spaces in London, we wholeheartedly believe in supporting the park with just under 10p from every pound spent at Pembroke Lodge going towards maintenance and general upkeep of the park.

Daniel Paul Hearsum
28th August 1958 – 7th April 2021

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness we announce the passing of our Chairman, Daniel Paul Hearsum.
Those who had the honour of knowing Daniel will remember him for his tireless dedication and unwavering passion for Pembroke Lodge and the Park. His bold vision and hard work turned the Lodge from a run-down catering facility to the much-loved tea rooms and multi-purpose venue it is today.
Without Daniel, Pembroke Lodge would not stand here proudly in Richmond Park. He saw potential and made it possible for all park visitors to enjoy.

Daniel’s funeral service will take place at Pembroke Lodge on Friday 7th May. Due to current restrictions it will be family and close friends only, but a livestream is available for those who wish to attend and pay tribute virtually. Please register in advance here

As a mark of respect, Pembroke Lodge and the kiosk will not be trading on Friday 7th May.

In lieu of flowers and in remembrance of Daniel, the family asks that any kind donations be made to The Hearsum Collection

Daniel dedicated many years of his life to collecting, preserving and working to share the heritage of The Royal Parks. His family hopes to continue his wishes to make the Collection accessible to all.
Details and donations can be made here: www.memorygiving.com/danielpaulhearsum

May he rest peacefully and may his legacy live on.
