Accommodation Options

 If you are from out of town or would prefer to stay locally and enjoy the party here are some recommendations for you to stay at:

Best Rate and Nearest: Brook Kingston Lodge Hotel – located on the edge of Richmond Park. A fairly good hotel for the area and price. If you want to say ‘hi’ to the bride and groom the morning after for breakfast, stay here, as we will be staying here and available to have breakfast and coffee with our out of town guests the day after.

Specially agreed room rate: £90 bed and breakfast, incl. VAT for double room/twin room

Suites (slightly larger rooms) could be available for £125. Ask reception if available and tell them you are part of the wedding party.

Please note the standard room rate is only available when phoning the hotel and quoting: Tina Southgate /Gerrard Wedding Party

**Several people are staying at this hotel, so we anticipate taxis may be able to be shared home.**

This hotel is on the way to Pembroke Lodge from the church (via the Kingston Gate to Richmond Park), so check in can be done in between the church service and Pembroke reception.
