A Little Bit About Kew
The earliest written reference to Kew is thought to be contained in Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars, as the location where the Roman Army forded the Thames in 54 BC. The name Kew is a combination of two words: the Old French kai (landing place; “quay” derives from this) and Old English hoh (spur of land). The land spur is the bend in the Thames. Henry V developed a Carthusian monastery to the south west of where Kew Observatory now stands.
Kew is widely known for being the location of the Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew Gardens), now a World Heritage Site, which includes Kew Palace. Kew has the oldest pot plant in the world: a cycad brought to Kew from South Africa in 1775 by Francis Masson. Kew Palace is the smallest of the British royal palaces. It was built by Samuel Fortrey, a Dutch merchant in around 1631. It was later purchased by George III.
Kew is also the home of important historical documents such as Domesday Book, which is on public display at The National Archives also in Kew. Most of Kew developed in the late 19th century, following the arrival of the District Line of the Underground, and is characterised by large detached or semi-detached houses.
