Kew Pier

About Kew Pier

Kew Pier is situated on the South shore of the River Thames next to Kew Bridge. The pier is a short walk from the historic Royal Botanic Gardens At Kew, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kew Pier is suitable for M.V Churchill however due to navigational restrictions M.V Avontuur IV & M.V London Rose cannot operate further up-river than Putney Pier. We will be happy to recommend a passenger boat for private charters from Kew.
