The Kew Orchids Festival is a celebration of Colombia's rich biodiversity and its incredible abundance of orchid species.

A visit to Kew Gardens is the perfect way to combine London sightseeing with a literal 'breath of fresh air'. A whopping 121 hectares of space makes it one of the largest botanical gardens in the world! See orangery, a 10-story pagoda, a mosque, the cool Temperate Gardens, a unique treetop walkway 18 meters above the ground, and more.

Founded in 1840, Kew Gardens boasts over 30,000 different kinds of plants and is more like a green outdoor museum.

Explore the manicured outdoors, and see different periods of landscape architecture and gardening styles.

Don't miss Temperate House, the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world! This Grade I listed building boasts some of the rarest and most threatened temperate zone plants from Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific Islands.

The 18-meter high Treetop Walkway puts you up among the branches. The Orangery lets you smell the sweet citrus trees, and the Classical-style brick Kew Palace is always fit for a photo or two.

Kew Gardens also has two different art galleries - the Marianne North Gallery hosts art from around the world, while the Shirley Sherwood contains botanical art.

Insider tip

At 121 hectares, the Kew is massive. It's worth taking a few moments upon entering to plan out a rough route - you don't want to double back to see something you've missed. Don't forget to plan in meal breaks too!

Great day out for us all

It was disappointing because we chose a rainy day but aside from that the Palm House and the Orchid exhibition were excellent.
The food and drink in the restaurant/tea rooms was extremely expensive.
The signage and the guide map were poor.
I would visit again but would choose a dry day in order to see more of the wonderful trees and plants in the grounds.

My purpose in visiting Kew Gardens was to see the Orchid Exhibition. I really enjoyed seeing the orchids. They were well presented and constantly surprised with their variety and beauty. The large number of people who came to see the orchids were well managed and treated in a friendly manner.
I walked around other areas of The Gardens during my visit. I always find my visits to Kew peaceful and tranquil.
