Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens - officially the Royal Botanic Gardens - were founded in 1759 by Princess Augusta (mother of George III), in the grounds of Kew House and Richmond Lodge. Kew House was demolished in 1802. Noted for its great variety of plants and wild-life, the gardens now cover 288 acres and were given to the nation by Queen Victoria in 1841. Kew is the name of this district on the south bank of the Thames and its name is derived from the Middle English Key - meaning 'a quay or wharf.

The station was opened as KEW GARDENS by the London & South Western Railway on 1 January 1869 and first used by Underground trains on 1 June 1877.
