Kew Area Guide
Need to know more about the area?
On the south side of the river Thames, in between Richmond and Barnes, is Kew, a peaceful, well cared-for and leafy suburb. It’s one of the most popular places to live in South West London due to its excellent transport links, village feel and close proximity to the Royal Botanic Gardens, one of London’s top visitor attractions.
Overground trains go to Waterloo with a change at Richmond - journey time between 27 and 38 minutes. There are direct trains from Kew Bridge on the Brentford side of the river, which take 32 minutes to Waterloo.
Kew is well serviced by buses, going into and out of London. Routes include the 65 between Ealing Broadway and Kingston, the 391 between Fulham and Richmond, the 237 between Hounslow and Shepherds Bush, and the 267 between Hampton Hill and Hammersmith.
The M4 and A4 are nearby offering providing access into and out of Central London.
