Kew is a suburb of Southport, a seaside town in Sefton, Merseyside, England. It makes up the south eastern edge of the town, bordering Scarisbrick. It is a middle class area of mostly modern development.
The area was originally a 12-acre garden & zoological site in the 1880s, named after Kew Gardens in Surrey. Visitors to the Town would travel via horse tram to enjoy the gardens, pavilion & lake which had gondoliers. Parts of the lake & gardens still survive. Modern day Kew is a mid-late 20th century housing estate close to the Hospital which was built on Blowick Moss & also former playing fields. The roads are mainly named after horse racing venues & the area includes a small shopping area, a primary school (Kew Woods) & a pub named The Pageant.
