Kew

Picturesque pocket – a delightful atmosphere between Kew Gardens and the Thames

"Looking towards Chiswick and Brentford from Kew Bridge, you can really appreciate the picturesque quality of London's most famous natural landmark...."

Jonathan Daykin

"As the tide changes, the view changes along the Thames at Brentford..."

Jonathan Daykin

"A little bit of countryside in London - an active cricket club and pubs looking directly onto Kew Green."

Where do Kew locals go?

Kew Gardens Hotel

Delicious food and a quirky interior makes this gastro pub a great choice every time. Grab a private booth, lounge on a sofa or hide up on the mezzanine.

Oliver's Wholefood Store

There is no better place than Oliver's in Kew for a guilt free treat! (They have guilty ones too if that's what you are after...)

Kew Village

Fancy a coffee? A slice of cake? A sausage sandwich? Do you need a last minute present for a girlfriend? Or do you just need a post office or access to the District Line....? Head to Kew Village. There is something for everyone!

Watermans Art Centre

Watermans is to West London what the National Theatre is to Central London; theatre, independent cinema and a great children's theatre.

The Glasshouse

Exceptional Michelin star restaurant serving this delicious lamb amongst other dishes!

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Enjoy a day out all through the year in these beautiful gardens. Make sure you check out the Victorian glasshouse, which is the largest surviving structure of its type in the world.

The City Barge

Best pub in Chiswick for food, atmosphere, beer and views that look straight out onto the Thames. There is a hilarious quiz that takes place on a Wednesday and the soft shell crab burger is something else!

Annie's

Great on a summer's evening with outdoor dining, Annie's is close to the Thames and serves reasonably priced food.

Grove Park Deli

The most amazing selection of deli foods and probably the best sausage rolls in the world!

The Old Stationhouse

Ant and Dec's local and right by Chiswick Station, this pub serves fantastic food!

The Smokehouse

The Korean pulled pork at The Smokehouse rocks! And you can order it as a side - genius!

Starbucks

Grab your morning coffee from here. The staff are really friendly and helpful and they even remember your name and the coffee you drink every day!

The Weir

Once home to J. M. W Turner, The Weir is a fantastic gastro pub serving hearty meals.

Gochisou

Delicious freshly prepared sushi and hot dishes perfect for lunch time. They also sell bubble tea and after 4pm, the food is 50% off!

Time

Time is in a lovely little bubble of shops along the River Brent. Lots of nice wraps and salads, great brunch options and with a great view as a bonus! Make sure you sit by the many windows.

"Kew Gardens is an area that has the quaint air of a village and is apart of this amazing busy city of London. Being able to stroll the river and walk around the Royal Botanical Gardens. Is really a bit of heaven on earth."

"It is believed that Julius Caesar crossed the River Thames at Brentford when he invaded Britain in 54 BC, as this section of the river was more easily negotiable at low tide."
