Welcome to the KewTW9 website

– the heart of all information about Kew.

Whether you are new to Kew, a visitor to Kew or a resident, KewTW9 aims to bring you all the information you need. If we have missed something or haven’t included an event or a news item, please just send us a message from here.

Compiled by local residents, local societies and organisations, this website aims to bring you all the information about Kew in just a few clicks.

Kew is a village within London – only 30mins on the tube from Central London. Well connected by trains, buses and the London Underground and not far from the M4 and M3 motorways, with many excellent state and private schools, Kew is a desirable place to live.

During 2018, we aim to bring our local businesses on board too.
