Blessed with a wonderful riverside location, a visit to the Bingham is like a holiday out of town. Six of its individually styled and high-ceilinged rooms overlook the Thames; all of them are named after a poet or poem, in honour of the Bingham’s artistic past (lesbian aunt-and-niece couple Katherine Harris Bradley and Edith Emma Cooper lived here in the 1890s, regularly hosting members of the Aesthetic Movement while they were in residence). Each room accommodates an ample bathtub and shower, art deco touches to the furnishings and irresistibly fluffy duck-and-goose-feather duvets. Run by the Trinder family for the last 25 years, the Bingham manages to feel both grand and boutique. It’s a real away-from-home treat.
