Kew Gardens, London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Home to the world’s most diverse collection of living plants and a scientific research centre of international renown, it's the perfect day out.

Discover beautiful glasshouses including the iconic Palm House and its exotic rainforest; the Princess of Wales Conservatory which invites you to explore 10 of the world’s climatic zones; and the Waterlily House with its amazing, giant lily pads.

Visitors of all ages love the 59ft (18m) high Treetop Walkway, which soars into the tree canopy offering a bird’s-eye view of the gardens. Enjoy a stroll along the Great Broad Walk Borders, home to more than 60,000 plants, and step into history at Kew Palace, the former summer residence of King George III.

Plus, relax with refreshments in one of our inviting cafes.

Kew Gardens is less than 30 minutes from central London, and easily reached by road, rail, and London Underground.
