Discover the exquisite beauty of London’s beloved Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and its key attractions. Make your own way to Kew Gardens to begin your tour, breeze through the entrance with your pre-purchased ticket and while away the hours in this massive UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the flexibility of setting your own pace and itinerary with an independent tour, or join a free guided walking tour for an informative look at some of the rare and exotic plants that blanket the 326-acre (121-hectare) site.

Admire beautifully manicured landscapes at the Azalea Garden, Minka House, Bamboo Garden and Queen’s Garden, home of Kew’s oldest sculptures. Explore the elaborate walkways that course through the park; weave thorough the crowns of oak trees on the Rhizotron and Xstrara Treetop Walkway or meander down the sun-dappled Holly Walk to spot 130-year-old trees.

As you wander, visit monumental buildings like the Royal Kew Palace and the 10-story Pagoda, a gorgeous octagonal structure in the southwest corner of the park. Head into the Temperate House – an original Victorian glasshouse – to view sub-tropical flora including the massive Chilean Wine Palm. Stop along the way to rest in a quaint sitting nook or head to one of the estate’s four cafés for lunch or tea (own expense). 
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
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.

Waste of a trip.

I turned up with two friends and we were refused entrance because we weren’t with an adult. No mention of this restriction on the booking site. Wasted an entire day. Very disappointed.

Amazing nature experience

The contrasting temperatures, humidities and wonderful array of plants was so awesome to experience. It I tells a story of so many cultures from around the world that we are not all able to visit but can explore nature at its finest. I would highly recommend Kew gardens for anyone who is interested in any kind of nature, plants or just a day out. I took my girlfriend for our 3rd year anniversary!

The Princess of Wales glass house was fab. The really irritating thing was the ticket fiasco. There was an option to download ticket which then presents something that says this is not a ticket but then says present this ticket???

Very happy to have visited the gardens but them on a Sunday not one stall was opened and gave us little time to sit down and enjoy the views. Maybe next time they should keep the food stalls opened even on a Sunday! Lovely day though, we will definitely be going there again in the summer or Christmas time evening best

I had never been to Kew garden so it was a very pleasant experience. Some of the staff were very helpful and some were not so much. We went to see the Japan exhibition which was disappointing

The whole process was very straight forward and the staff at Kew Gardens were extremely helpful. A few more shelters around the garden would come in useful

Our visit to Kew
Alison_H
, Sep 2021
The whole experience, liked the water lilies particularly and and rock garden and waterfall. It was a hot day but there was plenty of shade. We told the train ride which filled in the gaps we hadn’t managed to get to on foot, it highlighted what we missed and enabled us to head towards the other areas we wanted to explore.

The welcome from the staff at the gate and the friendly advise given by the attendant outside the gate was welcome. The gardens were super but a few more chairs would have made the experience so much better.

The garden was very interesting. Especially the greenhouse- it gave a real feeling of the rainforest. The flowers were so vibrant and eye catching. The lake had an amazing aroma with the tulips lighting the pool of nature.
