St. Anne’s Church, Kew Green

Situated on Kew Green, adjacent to the world famous Royal Botanic Gardens, stands this fine Church building. With its historic Royal connections and many monuments Saint Anne's Church witnesses to the Christian faith and its central place, both past and present, in Kew community life.

 

Musical Museum, near Kew

The Musical Museum contains one of the world’s foremost collections of automatic instruments.  From the tiny clockwork Musical Box to the self playing ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’, the collection embraces an impressive and comprehensive array of sophisticated reproducing pianos, orchestrions, orchestrelles, residence organs and violin players.

There is a concert hall seating 230 complete with stage and an orchestra pit from which the Wurlitzer console will rise to entertain you, just as it did in the cinema in the 1930’s.

Kew Palace, Kew Green
This stunningly beautiful British Royal Palace in Kew Gardens on the banks of the Thames up river from London was the home to George III.
The building today known as Kew Palace and opposite the old palace, was originally a mansion of moderate proportions known as the Dutch House. It was taken on a long lease by George III from the descendants of Sir Richard Levett, a powerful merchant and the former Lord Mayor of the City of London, who had purchased it from the grandson of the original owner, a Dutch merchant who had built the house in 1663.

The Barn Church, Kew
The Barn Church  was the first church in England to be built from a barn. The timbers come from a 17th-century barn in Oxted, in the far corner of Surrey. The Oxted barn was L-shaped, and used at various times for cattle and the storage of hops and crops. When the timbers were dismantled and moved to Kew in 1929, they were numbered. (You can still see the numbers on the beams). They were then reassembled to create one long nave.
