The upmarket residential area of Kew – with its easy accessibility to the attractions of nearby Richmond and Chiswick – is a haven of wide open spaces, tree-lined roads and low-rise tranquillity.
Kew Botanical Gardens is a World Heritage Site, and Kew Palace is home to the Domesday Book. Sports and leisure amenities are everywhere, with world-class venues such as Wimbledon, Twickenham and Kempton Park Racecourse within easy driving distance.
Bon viveurs will need no reminding that some of London’s best restaurants are to be found in the area. In Kew alone, there’s The Glasshouse and Anthony Worrall Thompson’s Kew Grill. In Chiswick, you’ll find La Trompette and Frankie’s Braganza (creation of Marco Pierre White), while Richmond plays host to The Bingham, Gaucho and the Michelin-starred Petersham Nurseries Café.
The whole area is buzzing with bars and cafés, fascinating independent boutiques and artisan-style shops – not forgetting the regular farmers’ markets. For those in search of high street or designer retail therapy – Kew Retail Park, Richmond, Westfield and Harrods are all within easy distance.
As you would expect, the area is not short of easily accessible state and private schools. The whole of Greater London, in fact, is on your doorstep as an Albany Court resident. Kew Bridge railway station is directly opposite the development, with Kew Gardens Station being your local connection to the London Underground. This is perfect for a quick commute to London Waterloo (from 28 minutes) or socialising and shopping in the West End.
Kew Bridge Road links directly to the South Circular Road, and Junction 1 of the M4 is just a five-minute drive away. The nearby M25 provides quick and easy access to all parts of London and the national motorway network. Last but not least, Heathrow Airport is just 15 minutes away!
