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 easy to negotiate

It was great my day. I spent my day in Kew garden very good

Kew Gardens is like an oasis, you hear the birds and not sounds of mordern life, walk around amazing gardens, trees. My only disappointment was to realise that next to the main cafe (Victoria Gate) there was only a tiny recycling bin...... why not make this a 100% environment friendly place? What can I do to help?

It was fantastic experience for me. Only one problem is too large to walk. I utilize the kew explorer, but still is not enough.
May 21, 2018
Stunning place to visit. Had a glorious day in what was a surprisingly quiet Kew Gardens. The ticket system worked very easily and we will definitely be looking at returning.
