  • Kew Observatory, also known as the King's Observatory, was an astronomical and terrestrial magnetic observatory founded by King George III (1760-1820), located within the Old Deer Park of the former Richmond Palace in Richmond, Surrey, now within Greater London. The former royal manor of Kew lies to the immediate north. The Observatory grounds overlie to the south the site of the former Carthusian Sheen Priory established by King Henry V in 1414.
