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!

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.
