Overview

  • A visit to one of the largest botanical gardens in the world is a perfect break from London's crowds and tubes

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!

It was a nice experience but unfortunately the biggest glass house was being refurbished on our visit which was a dissapointment and we only booked day before but it did not mention this . I do not think I would have booked if this was known to me

Fantastic day out. Parking was very easy and getting into the Park with our e tickets was really simple. A magnificent place to visit, lovely places to eat and loads of fun for all the family. We didn't manage to see everything we wanted and will definitely return.

It wasn't that fascinating as like how I expected for 14 pound. It's a huge place and it needs more signs which is telling where I'am and showing other routes. For kids it was more playground, that's good. I was also in botanical garden in Copenhagen (Denmark) which was a little bit more beautiful and the main point it was free.

Booking on-line is so easy. My tickets were sent to my phone and gaining entry at the gate at Kew Gardens took less than a minute. Excellent all round.

I walked around the gardens, visited the Sherwood Gallery and the large green house near the Victoria Gate. The Sherwood Gallery had an excellent collection of artwork from 880 British artists. The green house contained some really exotic plants and species including: Coco-de-mer (sea coconut). A huge seed found in the Seychelles and on the endangered list. This was an absolutely fantastic and educational experience. Would certainly recommend it to anyone.
