Description

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!

Very good

Arrived before 10am to park at the post code destination I was given from the Kew Info helpdesk in Kew Green. Spaces were available for free parking on the Kew Green side of the road, but there were no explanatory parking signs in this area. There were Residents only parking signs on the other side of the road and also signage to a pay and display carpark. After asking a few passersby who confirmed free parking on the Kew Green side we entered via the Elizabeth Gate to have our pre purchased tickets scanned.
Everything else was excellent including the free guided tour and all of the glasshouses.
The weather dried up and the sun came out later for a short time.
Excellent day out.
