Kew Gardens Station

Tube and London Overground station in zones 3 and 4, serving the North London Line and the Richmond branch of the District Line.

The eastbound and westbound platforms are connected by a bridge over the lines and by a subway.

The most obvious reason for travelling to this station is to visit Kew Gardens.


  • Newspaper/sandwiches/tea and coffee kiosk outside the barriers on the eastbound side.
  • Small espresso/cappuccino kiosk (Puccino's) on the eastbound platform. Not open in the late evening (8pm).
  • Ladies' and gents' toilets on the eastbound platform. Didn't check whether they were open/working. The Railway pub next to the station on the Westbound side is part of a community toilet scheme.

There's a fish and chip shop just outside the exit from the westbound platform. Also a corner shop/off-license, and a Chinese takeaway (“Kew Gardens Chinese Takeaway”).

More stuff outside the main exit on the eastbound side: Starbucks, a branch of Spirited Wines, Tesco Express, Barclays and Natwest cashpoints (one is directly outside the station, the other down the road a bit), an ironmonger, the Kew Bookshop, Pether Butchers (a traditional butcher's shop offering free-range meat), a bakers, a fishmongers and a pub called The Railway (the pub actually has a view onto the eastbound platform, via large plate-glass windows).
