Pembroke Lodge - A short history

Situated in 11 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens in the heart of Richmond Park, Pembroke Lodge started life in the 1750s as The Lodge, a single room cottage inhabited by a mole catcher. It was later enlarged and renamed Hill Lodge and in 1787 it was granted to the Duchess of Pembroke who added a Georgian wing to it.

In 1847 it was passed onto the then Prime Minister Lord John Russell who used it to conduct business affairs and entertain such well-known writers as Dickens, Thackeray, Tennyson, and Longfellow. It was later to become the home of Bertrand Russell, the famous philosopher and mathematician who grew up there between 1876 and 1894.

During the 2nd World War it became a Regimental HQ, then a government-run tea room and today it is privately run and is open to the public and is a popular Surrey wedding venue.

The Hearsum family took over the lease of Pembroke Lodge in 1997 and along with comprehensive restoration work began collecting thousands of fascinating artifacts connected with Pembroke Lodge and Richmond Park. The final phase of the restoration work involves the proposed setting up of a visitor information centre to house all these finds in the derelict land that is adjacent to the current car park.

"Dear Richard and Tina, you were fantastic at our wedding in Pembroke Lodge in December 2017...putting my wife and myself at ease and making the most of what little light there was ...The photos are incredible.
 
Several of our guests commented on how friendly you both were. You blended into the background to get some really natural shots, including some gorgeous candid photos of some of the children at the wedding.
 
My grandpa was not able to get to the group shot, but you Photoshopped him into the final picture. That was the piece de resistance.
 
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone."
