Kew is a charming riverside settlement in south-west London. It's a place that retains its original village atmosphere while also welcoming millions of visitors to the Royal Botanic Gardens - a World Heritage Site. Kew Gardens displays an enormous collection of plants, shrubs, trees and grasses from around the world in themed gardens, landscaped walks and lawns, ponds, terraces, greenhouses and museums spread across 300 acres. The Gardens' most familiar landmarks are the Chinese Pagoda and the recently restored Kew Palace, a four-storey, red-brick 17th Century mansion where the Queen celebrated her 80th birthday in 2006. Kew Gardens staff are at the forefront of botanical conservation and have been asked for advice and help with many international projects. Kew is the keeper of the National Archives, formerly known as the Public Records Office, and it is the burial place of artist Thomas Gainsborough. It's close to the attractions of neighbours Richmond and Brentford, home to the Kew Bridge Steam Museum and the marvellous Syon House and Park. A trip across Kew Bridge leads to Chiswick's Strand On The Green, where quaint pubs and houses line one of the Thames' prettiest river walks. Boat trips are available from Kew Gardens Pier.
