Kew is a leafy green suburb southwest of London. It is at the northern most tip of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames with the Thames river running along its northern and western perimeter. At its northern tip is the famous Kew Green, your archetypal village green with cricket square and duck pond and the infamous Kew Bridge, often heavily congested with cars.
Kew is renowned for the Royal Botanic Gardens (a world heritage site), which includes Kew Palace. Kew is also the home of the National Archives, which houses historical documents such as the Domesday Book.
