Overview
Highlights
  • 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...)
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.

I loved the gardens, there was so much to see. It was like being in a huge park, really nice. You can stroll at will, start where you want and finish where you want too. It is very popular too, but it doesn't feel crowded at all.

Excellent system but at Kew gate ticket booth the cashier managed to lose the electronic tickets from my phone screen each time I passed it through to her! Would have been quicker to print them off in the end!

Well worth a visit to these gardens. You can be there all day if you choose & I wish we had taken a picnic! My friend who's birthday I got this for loved it, especially the Marianne North gallery!

Super easy to book and pay for tickets online. Lady on the entrance gate struggled to scan our barcodes but managed with some help from her colleague.
Kew was lovely, so much to see. As a visitor to the area I hadn't anticipated the constant noise from incoming aircraft landing at nearby Heathrow. Therefore no tranquility at Kew. Enjoyable all the same.
