Take the second walk exit from the roundabout across the dual carriageway and turn into Kew road, following the signs for Kew Gardens. Stay on this pavement for half a mile, and the entrance is on the left

From the Chiswick roundabout take the A205 signposted Richmond to the traffic lights and bear left over Kew Bridge.

Bear right at the lights (Browns Restaurant) and follow the Kew Gardens walls on your right until it stops.

Overflow parking is via the first gates and the main entrance is round the corner via double gates, and clearly signed

By road from the South: M25 exit at the M3 and drive north towards London.  This becomes the A316 and takes you past Twickenham Stadium on your left. After three roundabouts you will cross the river.

Drive to the next roundabout, and bear left at the lights into Kew Road. The entrance is via double iron gates ½ mile on your left.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)

It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships.

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
