Departure Point

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Herbarium Kew Green, Kew, Richmond-upon-Thames TW9 3AE England
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).

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.

Wonderful experience, highly recommend going in autumn, beautiful colours and the tour guide was fantastic
Last day of the Orchid Festival
, Mar 2020
Blown away by the beauty of the Orchid Festival and Kew Gardens as a whole. Best mental health remedy ever. Sucks to be back in Bucks lol. If I had the money on the day to become a member, I'd have jumped at the chance, as I cannot wait to go back and explore throughout the rest of the seasons! Inspired by my late Grandfather's passion for orchids and botanical/horticultural wisdom. Wish I had gone into gardening from school now. I consider it a privilege to have witnessed such a demonstration of natural beauty. A microcosm of Eden, me thinks. Cannot put into words how highly I'd recommend the place :)
Fantastic Kew trip
, Mar 2020
Good value for money and lots to see, even in the spring time there is lots to do, good for families.
Interesting experience but could have been better
, Feb 2020
The grounds were quite beautiful and is was interesting to see so many varieties of trees and plants. Orchids were stunning. The signage and map did not make it easy to navigate round the gardens. Food in the cafe was had a limited variety of choose and not enough seats. Glad I went but won’t be in a hurry to go again
A stunning day even in cold grey wet weather
, Feb 2020
The worst part of the day was searching around 30 minutes to park in grey cold wet weather .parking really needs to be improved for such a beautiful place. We drove from Kent today so hoped there would be parking but it was woeful. However Kew Gardens itself is stunning. My 6 year old granddaughter came with her mother and us so right across the age groups. There is a small train to get around the park but to experience the true beauty of the scenery it’s best to walk. There is an orangery restaurant but we took our own picnic like so many others which we sat and ate in the botanic house in warmth and humid surroundings. The princess of Wales conservatory was so good it took us an hour to get round. We only completed half the park in 4 hours and will be returning to complete the rest.
Beautiful Place

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,
kinda ho-hum

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.
