Head inside Kew Gardens and then spend as little or as much time as you like exploring London’s finest botanical gardens. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kew Gardens consists of acres of tranquil grounds with one of the world’s largest collections of plants. Either walk around at leisure or join one of the free guided walking tours that take place daily in the gardens.

Stroll around admiring highlights like the Azalea Garden, Minka House and Bamboo Garden in the center of the park. Check out the 17th century-style Queen’s Garden near Kew Palace (also known as the Dutch House), and see several of Kew’s oldest sculptures that were donated by the British Royal Family.

Perhaps take a walk along the Rhizotron and Xstrara Treetop Walkway, and stroll through the crowns of oak trees at a height of 59 feet (18m), seeing birdlife, fungi and lichen up close. Watch out for the 10-storey Pagoda in the southwest corner of the gardens, and wander along the Holly Walk, seeing trees that have grown there for over 130 years.

Bask in balmy tropical temperatures inside Temperate House – the world’s largest surviving Victorian glasshouse – and see a spectacular array of African plants and sub-tropical trees and palms. In the center of the beautiful building is a Chilean Wine Palm, which is said to be one of the world’s tallest indoor plants.

With plenty of leafy picnic areas, as well as four cafés on site, you can eat lunch inside the gardens (own expense), or simply sit down and relax in between seeing all the rich flora and fauna.

Used Viator to pre- purchase tickets to the gardens to see the Chihuly exhibition. Ticket was easy to redeem at the front gate and we were in quickly.
Heaps of beautiful areas both inside the conservatories and just walking around outside, Plenty of places to sit, a great cafe and gift shop too.
You can reach the gardens on the tube,

Seriously recommend visiting this garden but advance tickets still meant we had to queue along with those people who did not have tickets - not a happy visitor! Spent 7 hours walking around and probably still didn't see everything.

Kew Gardens are absolutely worth visiting!

Great to get to the Gardens, see the long queue, and just book with Viator through the TripAdvisor app and be able to skip the line! We had a lovely day, it's a wonderful place.

This tour was amazing!

It was great beautiful the hand of God exists in this garden. Only regretable thing is that it was very cold sleeted and snowed the day we went.

Kew Gardens Wonderful Standard of Catering Poor and Food And Drink Badly Presented

Kew Gardens is a place you need several days to see. We had an afternoon before flying home. The place is huge, so I can/t really say. tThe Victoria green house was closed for repair and that was very disappointing since we could have seen it at least. .

i was not impressed with these gardens. I expected to see more flowers. Its seemed to be a lot of green plants. The grounds didn't seem to be that well maintained either...the grass was brown in early September. The gardens at Hampton Court were far more impressive. I kind of feel Kew was a waste of money, and precious time.
