Explore over 130 hectares of landscapes and gardens, stroll a soaring treetop walkway and wander through tropical glasshouses reaching up to 27°C. Enjoy four cafes and restaurants, art galleries, a serene lake and waterlily pools.

Kew's great 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 and the Royal Kitchens to discover Kew's history and explore a beautiful Georgian royal retreat.
