Kew Gardens is a most especially during autumn and the free tours are so interesting if you want to know more about the gardens, its history or the plants. All the volunteers are amazing and so knowledgeable. The garden always restores a sense of tranquility. Thank you Kew Gardens.
I loved our trip to Kew Gardens. It is so peaceful and has beautiful grounds. We walked so much, the greenhouses were amazing to see - we even saw an iguana!! The ducks are so friendly, they come so close to you. The kids had an awesome time and if you take a picnic it’s even better. Surrounding borough residents get discounted tickets so that’s a plus.
Excellent Kew Gardens has so much to offer, really need a full day to hope to get round. Treetop walk was great literally walking in the the op of trees on wire mesh see thru floor. The Process of Wales Glass House was an experience just think of a place Carribbean, Brazil anywhere and find some trees or foliage to suit, mind boggling. The great Pagoda with six or seven levels breathtaking views. Lots more, fascinating.
We came to Kew with friends and all our young children. It was an absolutely fantastic day. We took a picnic. It's one of the few places I've felt is spacious enough for the kids to run around without fear of cars, bikes etc. The kids loved the Badger sets and finding the dragons. We'll definitely be coming back.
A beautiful place for a walk, any time of thw year. Different plants bloom every season so it is well worth coming back. If you get tired or are in need of a break there are several cafés and restaurants in the park itself.
