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.



Short-stay parking on Kew Road outside the entrance, can be purchased direct through the RingGo App. RingGo parking can be used throughout the Richmond Borough and many other areas of London. For guests who need a permit, we can provide a permit for £5 per day.
