King's Head Hotel on the corner of Hill Rise and Bridge Street
This three-quarter view shows the Bridge Street frontage and Hill Rise elevation of the former King’s Head Hotel. An eighteenth-century inn with early-to-mid nineteenth century alterations, it was Grade II listed in 1983 as Christies, 1 Hill Rise; listing number: 1065431. Located in the Richmond Hill conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, it is shown without any signage other than one above a stepped entrance designated as ‘Lounge’ and its rusticated stucco ground floor and projecting entrance bay are painted in a dark, possibly black, colour with details contrasting in white. Bill’s Richmond restaurant now occupies the lower floors, and the first floor forms part of the Viva night club at 3 Hill Rise. The terrace of three-storey shops shown beyond at 3-17 Hill rise are also eighteenth-century and were Grade II listed at the same time; listing number: 1357707. Names shown on the hoardings above the shopfronts include Dolphin House, Lourose, and Mayflower. The four-storey terrace on Petersham Road beyond includes some locally listed buildings. A few pedestrians are shown in the background and the direction signs on the junction include one for London Airport.
