Kew Village is the gateway to Kew Gardens. When you arrive at Kew Gardens tube station, you are greeted with one of the most attractive shopping areas in London. A wide selection of independent shops, restaurants and cafés sits in a horseshoe-shaped road which forms the centre of the village.
If you are on a day out to Kew Gardens or doing some research at the National Archives, Kew Village is well worth spending some time in. Should you need a present for a tricky family member the shops will provide a wonderful selection of gifts which you may not find in the larger chain retailers. You can sit outside at any number of cafe tables and watch the world go by or use the village as a starting point for a walk down the river or a picnic on Kew Green.
There is something here for everyone in this intimate and friendly corner of West London.
