Getting here by public transport
Accessible public transport advice is available online from Transport for London. If you are travelling to Kew Gardens station from central London by the District Line or on the westbound service of London Overground, please be aware that if you are a wheelchair user or find stairs difficult, there is no direct accessible exit to Kew Gardens from the westbound platform. It is advisable to continue your journey to Richmond (one stop) and catch a tube or train back to Kew Gardens, where the eastbound platform leads out via a level exit to the Kew village area. From here it is a distance of approximately 0.4km to the Victoria Gate entrance to the Gardens on Kew Road.
Richmond station is served by National Rail and there is a lift to street level and level access to the pavement from the station concourse. The bus stop for the local bus route which travels in the direction of Kew Gardens, 65, in the direction of Ealing Broadway, is on the opposite side of the street from the station. The bus stops near two of the gates to the Gardens: Lion Gate and Victoria Gate (click here for further information about the gates).
