Description

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.

ALL THE BUZZ

From this summer until the end of 2017, 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!

Kew is a breath of fresh air at all times of the year.
To experience the botanical wonders from all areas of the world lovingly cared for and displayed in the architectural glass palaces is so enjoyable.
In addition you can walk around (and above) the huge collection of trees and forget you are anywhere near the bustling city.
Looking forward to my next visit.

I had a really lovely time, the gardens are picturesque - a photographer's dream! I found my way around the park really easily and I'm usually someone who gets lost... not this time. You receive a map as you enter the gardens and signs are around to help. Everything is in good distance from each other; which is an even bigger help with knowing your whereabouts. Food is pricey in the shops and restaurants - as expected; so be sure to bring your own food and drink if you're not one to fork out. Besides that, I was in my eliminate the whole day - with just me and my camera.

Kew is always worth a visit. Even so late in Autumn there is plenty to see, plant and tree wise and at the moment there is an Autumn Art exhibition spread out round the grounds,
