Full description

Enjoy a full-day out at Kew Gardens, London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, located just 30 minutes from central London by Underground and Overground trains. Your ticket includes entry to 326 acres of gardens, 3 art galleries, a treetop walkway and Kew Palace.  Step inside Kew Palace and explore a beautiful royal retreat comprising the bedrooms of princesses, an intimate dining room, and the newly restored Georgian Royal Kitchens. The site includes extensive gardens under glass that support a variety of plant life year-round. You’ll be amazed by the giant lily pads in the Waterlily House. Experience an exotic rainforest in the Palm House, and travel through 10 climate zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.  Other highlights include the Arboretum. Standing at 17 meters tall, and constructed from 170,000 aluminum parts and 1,000 LED lights, the Hive structure mimics the visual and sound effects of an actual beehive in Kew Gardens. Learn all about the extraordinary life of bees, and the vital role they play in the health of the planet.

Visited most areas of the gardens. The greenhouses are very interesting and beautiful buildings. We visited in January where a lot of places were closed for refurbishment or weather. This was not a problem for us, if you wish to go into these places. Go another time of the year.

The booking was smooth. Mobility scooter promptly available. Parking was easier than it looked on the website. The tour on the bus was interesting but microphone and dialogue not easy to follow. Better English speaking guide would have been great. Excellent choice of food facilities but very expensive. Membership with reduced catering prices would be a great help. Overall good experience with friendly staff

I have been to Kew Gardens once in the Winter and once in Summer and both Seasons offer a wonderful experience taking the whole day. The staff are great to talk to and they are so knowledgeable that they can provide immediate answers to all questions. The cafes, restaurants, gift and garden shops all add to a great experience. The biggest surprise for me, as someone who lives in Spain, was seeing hundreds of green parakeets flying wild around the gardens.
