If you don't know this area already, you will love it! Kew Gardens is very near, and there are restaurants, coffee shops in Kew Village.
Kew Gardens Station (7 mins) and Richmond Station (20 mins) both offer tube and rail services, we are a minute's walk from the bus stop into Richmond.
Access to central London is very easy (30 mins on the tube). More locally, there are river walks at both Kew and Richmond, as well as the lovely Richmond Park, of course, a short bus ride or drive away.
