Established in 1837, The Original Maids of Honour is home to the infamous 'Maids of Honour Tart', thought to be the favourite of King Henry VIII and his court in Richmond Palace, and made by us with the same secret recipe which has been handed down for generations.



We are close to the junction of Kew Road and Kew Gardens Road, directly opposite the Cumberland Gate entrance to Kew Gardens (no longer in public use), 500 metres from the main gate on Kew Road and a few minutes from Kew Village and Kew Green.


Kew Gardens Station services London Overground trains and the District Line tube to Central London and Richmond. Kew Rd is on the 65 and 391 bus routes (look for the stop called ‘Kew Gardens Road’). M4 & M3 motorways are nearby.



Locally the parking is for residents only Monday to Friday from 10am till noon. All other times the parking in the area is free however, it is a subject to availability.

We do have a limited amount of parking vouchers available so please contact us before hand if you wish to purchase these. The vouchers cost £10/day.
