From what I understand there's limited parking at Kew and only spaces for people who arrive early.

Anyone been and parked there lately? Ideally I'd like to go on a Sunday.

DD is planning her Blue Peter dragon design so we're going for inspiration and hopefully a civilised day out hmm.

On Sunday you can park free in some of the surrounding roads. Otherwise, yes be early

The only parking I know about is along the Kew Road and some of the side streets - although a lot of the area is residents parking. You might be better parking in Richmond and walking/getting the 65 bus (which comes every 4-5 minutes). There is a big car park opposite Richmond swimming pool

Thanks. I'll do some research on Richmond car parks and make a plan.

There's a car park by Richmond station. You can walk from there to Lion gate or a bit further to the main gate. If you don't want to walk just get 65 bus from across the road from the station.

You can try parking outside or side streets first but if not head there. Sometimes they come up and other days it's choca
