Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew


Explore a World Heritage Site at Kew Gardens – the world's most famous garden. Stroll a soaring walkway amid tree canopies and wander through extensive gardens under glass reaching up to 27°C. Enjoy a day out with four cafes and restaurants, art galleries, a serene lake and waterlily ponds.

Glasshouses provide hours of undercover discovery for visitors of all ages. Be amazed by giant lily pads in the Waterlily House, delve into an exotic rainforest in the Palm House, and travel through 10 climatic zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.

Step inside Kew Palace to explore a beautiful royal retreat comprising princesses' bedrooms, an intimate dining room and the Royal Kitchens.
