Kew Gardens station opened in 1869. The two-storey yellow-brick building is one of the few remaining 19th-century structures on the North London Line and is a tremendous example of mid-Victorian railway architecture, and as part of the Kew Gardens conservation area, it is a protected structure. The station's south-facing footbridge, built in 1912, is also Grade II listed. Note the bridge's high walls, originally designed to protect train passengers' attire from the smoke of the steam trains. The station's original timber steaming hall now houses The Tap on The Line, rendering Kew Gardens the only station on the London network that has an integrated pub. Situated ten miles west of central London, the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew are a popular tourist destination housing the UK's best collection of flora. The Victoria Gate entrance of the Gardens on the charming Lichfield Road is 400 metres from the station. The station is also just 600 yards walk from the National Archives.
