Kew Palace was initially bought by George III as a palace for the royal children. Many princes and princesses have been raised here! Later it was put into use as a summer residence for the British Royals.
The huge botanical gardens that lie around it occupy a whopping 121 hectares and have been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 2003. The abundant flora and fauna will make you forget that you're in the London metropolis!

A few attractions closed for refurb.
Can't easily have a nice glass of wine anywhere- either have to eat an overpriced aftertoon tea or eat in a canteen full of children- Think they could do with having a little adults only bar area for summer with outside seating that can be SHARED rather than militant table service at the Botanical Cafe.
