The Royal Botanic Kew Garden, London Reviews
Great regret I am living to far from, otherwise I would definitely buy the yearly Friends of Kew pass. No mess and no big crowd despite weekend day. To many attraction to take all in one day. The Palm House bring the tropical island experience and Temperate House will deliver knowledge of treasures gathered during numerous world wide expeditions. Treetops Walkway is both attraction and a challenge for many, with some stunning views. Another one is Princess of Wales Conservatory, just missing vocabulary to describe the endless rapture on every corner you turn into in this maze of rooms and different cacti plots. The rest of the garden is also absolute must see, including Japanese Landscape or Kew Palace, Queen Charlotte's Cottage or The Hive structure. In 2019 they opening completely new kids zone by the river, can not wait to go there again !
If you love plants, this should be a must-visit paradise on your London itinerary. It truly lives up to its fame as one of the best Botanic Gardens in the world. The exhibits are well organized and spread over a very large estate, which would require an entire day to completely walk around and enjoy. I especially loved the Princess of Wales Conservatory. There are enough restaurants and food courts to keep you energized, but I did feel there was a need for more dustbins spread out around the property (not that it was unclean). Highly recommended!
This place is huge and is easily a days visit. I was completely mesmerized by it. There is just so much to see and it is all so beautiful. It really makes you appreciate nature and all the amazing things it offers. The tree top walk was excellent but not for the people afraid of heights. Definitely going back soon to see the things we didn't get time to see.
This place is absolutely gorgeous. I only had the chance of being there for 3 hours but it was stunning. Everything is kept to the highest standards. I recommend making this a one day visit and there is so much to see. You can help up walking quite a lot as well, so comfortable shoes and layer up if going in the winter (The green houses are very hot). The cafe at the entrance is was quite busy so I wouldn’t rely on it for food. There’s no need to take the Kew Gardens train, you don’t really notice how much you walk as there’s so much to see. There are several entrances, in different sides of the river. If meeting with people make sure you agree on one.
Wonderful place for families, always a new exhibition or theme. Love the restored glass house and pagoda this year. Kids playground are Great and a new kids forest on the making. Entrance £17 adults £5 kids although value for money as there is a lot to do there and you can spend the whole day. Lovely shops and restaurants available everywhere. Great ice cream available!
