Hi Arie,
By road from Kew to Wisley is about 27 miles if you go via the M3 and M25 and takes about 35 minutes driving. I'm sorry but I have no idea what a taxi would cost for that distance/time. The alternative is train from Richmond to West Byfleet and then taxi from there to Wisley (about 4 miles so this should not be too expensive) - this is the route as suggested by Neil in the previous post. The only bus that comes to the garden is the one detailed also in previous posts - route 515.
Hope this helps a little

Thanks Neil and Paul,
That is a great help. We visited Utrecht today and it was unbelievable.
Looking forward to Wisley on Tuesday.
If you are available it would be nice to meet you Paul.

The most important part of a garden is the one who enjoys it.

Hope you have a great visit, Arie... and that the weather is kind to you - it's very cold and windy up here in Aberdeen!
