Kew Palace
  • A visit to one of the largest botanical gardens in the world is a perfect break from London's crowds and tubes
  • Featuring conservatories with jungle plants, a treetop walkway, art galleries and restaurants, a day at the Kew has something for everyone
  • 121 hectares offers plenty of opportunity to stop and smell the roses (and the oranges, and the water lilies, and the chocolate trees...)

London's busy-ness is exhilarating - until it's not. And then you need a break. 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! It features an orangery, a 10-story pagoda, a mosque, a unique treetop walkway 18 meters above the ground, and more. Visit, explore and relax - it's a walk in the park!

Founded in 1840, Kew Gardens has over 30,000 different kinds of plants. Making it an open-air museum of herbs, plants, and trees.

A visit here gives you the opportunity to explore the manicured ideal outdoors, and see different periods of landscape architecture and gardening style. From the Great Pagoda to Queen Charlotte's Cottage, the Kew complex is dotted with intriguing buildings nestled among - and filled with - shoots, shrubs, and bulbs.

And not only the buildings and the plants, the Kew has more surprises up its sleeve (or rather: up its trees). The 18-meter high Treetop Walkway puts you up among the branches, and is one of the favorite features of this lush green paradise.

Kew Gardens also features an Orangery (unsurprisingly, filled with citrus trees), and the Classical-style brick Kew Palace. This building, which is also open to the public, hosted Queen Elizabeth II's birthday party(!)

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. No matter how you plan your day, you'll find a visit to the Kew both restorative and invigorating, just as was always the plan.


From the summer of 2017 until the end of 2018, check out The Hive. This award-winning artwork is inspired by research into the health and life of honeybees. The enormous lattice is fitted with LED lights and sounds, that respond in real-time to the energy surges of an actual beehive behind-the-scenes! Follow one of the talks to learn how you can help these vital pollinators survive and thrive.

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!

Lovely day. Staff at the entrance were very helpful. I would have appreciated it if staff were located throughout the gardens to help with directions to other attractions.

The whoole visit was entirely magical. The different plant houses; the two cafe and Orangery restaurant (lunch and tea:-)) excellent quality , clean and hassle free.
Parking at this time of year easy and no fuss. It took me an hour and a half from the depths of Wiltshire to the entrance . . easy.
Definitely going again in a couple of months to se how the beautiful herbaceous beds are doing.
Wouldn`t change a thing.
Thank you
