He made his television debut in 1991, billed as Richard Bonneville. His early roles were usually good-natured bumbling characters like Bernie in Notting Hill and Mr. Rushworth in Mansfield Park . In the BBC television series, Take A Girl Like You and Armadillo , he played more villainous characters, leading up to the domineering Henleigh Grandcourt in Daniel Deronda and the psychopathic killer James Lampton in The Commander . In Love Again, he played the poet Philip Larkin. In 2004, he played Sir Christopher Wren in the docudrama Wren – The Man Who Built Britain. In Iris , he played the young John Bayley opposite Kate Winslet, with his performance lauded by critics and receiving a BAFTA nomination for Best Supporting Actor. In early 2010 earned a role in the comedy film Burke and Hare. He is currently appearing in popular ITV period drama Downton Abbey, as Robert, Earl of Grantham. He is also slated to appear in Hippie Hippie Shake, alongside Cilian Murphy and Sienna Miller.

In 2009, Bonneville played the voice of Justice Fosse in Joseph Crilly's UK premiere of Kitty and Damnation for the Giant Olive Theatre Company at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in Kentish Town. Shortly thereafter he became Giant Olive's first Patron.

He is a patron of the London children's charity Scene & Heard, and of the medical relief charity Medical Emergency Relief International.
