Halford House is a Grade II listed building[1] in Halford Road, in the centre of Richmond in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Originally an 18th-century manor house with 19th-century additions,[1] it was purchased by the Christian Fellowship in Richmond in 1954.[2] It previously housed the Richmond School of Music.[1][3]

The earliest parts of Halford House date from 1710.[4] The rest was built in 1745, with additions in 1867 at the back of the house.[4]
