Make London sightseeing a literal breath of fresh air with tickets to Kew Gardens. Your Kew Gardens tickets get you into the world's largest botanical gardens, where you can roam a sprawling outdoor green space far from the madding crowd. Spot landmark sites like Kew Palace, the 10-story Chinese pagoda, the vast and beautiful Temperate House, and even a cascading waterfall.

Founded in 1840, Kew Gardens boasts over 30,000 different plant varieties and is more like a green museum, showcasing and celebrating different periods of landscape architecture and gardening styles. You'll even find a royal palace on the site!

Tickets to Kew Gardens will also allow you to visit Temperate House – the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world, home to 1,500 plant species. The park's botanists tend to some of the rarest and most threatened temperate zone plants from Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

Get the best view of the gardens from the Treetop Walkway. Take inventory of the grounds atop the foliage, and get a unique vantage point of the park. Ground yourself again with a trip to the art galleries, included with your Kew Gardens ticket purchase. The Marianne North Gallery hosts art from around the world, while the Shirley Sherwood contains botanical art.

All that walking around and exploring is bound to make you hungry so head over to the numerous cafes and restaurants at Kew Gardens to refuel and recharge!

Straightforward on online booking system via my phone - check the options as it's only £9 for people up to age 29, so we saved £25 on my son's tickets. QR code entry very easy.
