Built as gentleman’s townhouse in 1717 The Kings Head’s fine Georgian architecture blends with modern practicalities to give warm and comfortable surroundings and a relaxed ambiance.

The rooms to the front of the hotel are typically large and many of the building’s Georgian features have been retained including the ballroom where Franz Liszt gave a piano recital in 1841.

An earlier guest was the artist J.M.W. Turner who described the hotel as “The finest in Richmondshire”. The Kings Head is one of the Welcome to Yorkshire Turner Trail bench locations, you can listen to the Richmond audio tour and see the full Turner Trail route by clicking to - Find out more
