Absolutely beautiful place. Will 100% be going back as did not manage to do it all. The only negative is the price of food inside Kew Gardens. I do not believe it was value for money and for 3 of us was actually more than we paid for the tickets to get in.

Kew is a beautiful place huge area: it was my first time here didn’t realise that some things inside closed at 4pm so visit the earlier closing things first.still had an amazing day and will have to go back again probably several times to see the things I missed .

At first glance, I was shocked because there was no grass, just a dry area. The trees have also suffered heat damage and it hasn't rained for a long time. BUT: then I dived back into the magical Kew world. The greenhouses, the pagoda, the great restaurants and shops, Kew Palace and the kitchen garden. The Evolution Garden, the Marianne North Gallery and, and, and... I was there three days in a row from morning to night, enjoyed every minute and still haven't seen everything. A wonderful place, this largest and most diverse botanical garden in the world. My tip: do the round trip with the green tourist train Kew Explorer immediately after entering (£6.50 per adult). It's totally worth it and you can ride it unlimited times all day once you've paid for it. Best Spots: Hidden Places of Kew Palace (awesome tour!), Temperate House, Princess of Wales Conservatory, Vegetable Garden. And the restaurants. Great iced tea, homemade
