Tube Stations

Our two tube stations are in Richmond and Kew Gardens.   Richmond underground station is at the end of the District Line and part of the mainline train station. The tube will get you into Central London in about 45 minutes and there are good car parking facilities.  The station is also on the overland rail network and the fast trains go direct to Waterloo in 20 minutes.   Kew Gardens underground station is one stop along the line from Richmond, heading towards London.  It's about a 5-10 minute walk to Kew Gardens itself, along leafy suburban streets.  There is very limited car parking near the tube station.

Heathrow To Richmond

Heathrow Airport is about 14 miles from Richmond town centre.  There are no direct public transport links between the two, although a cab/taxi will only take about 30 minutes -but is likely to cost you 40 to 50 pounds.  You can get a bus from any of the Heathrow terminals to Feltham station and then a direct train to Twickenham and Richmond. Depending on how long you have to wait, you should plan at least an hour.

Heathrow also has a tube station on the Piccadilly line - you can either change at South Ealing station and catch a 65 bus, or take the tube right into Hammersmith and then change to the District Line to Richmond or Kew Gardens.
