Spent a fantastic day at Kew just a shame they haven't updated and invested in a few signs, along with other visitors we walked up and down the paths in search of toilets and various landmarks, we even overheard one of the staff informing a...More

An incredible botanic garden, even for someone who is neither a botanist nor a green-thumb gardener! The place must be absolutely spectacular when the flowers along the Broad Walk are in full bloom. We were there in May, and although the rhododendrons were in bloom,...More

Marianne North Gallery is unbelieveable. Palm House (Green House/Glas House) was great. Princess of Wales Conservatory are not to be missed. One day not enough. And the biggest glass house (Temperate House) was closed for renovations. We didn't cover even quarter of it and we...More

I don't know anything about plants so just to walk around the gardens was a pleasure in itself. However, don't plan on visiting without having had a big meal in advance. The food pricing is absolutely outrageous - I think it was about £6.50 for...More

Rich in history and worth every penny. This unbelievable botanical garden is beyond words. Trees as old as 1760, what a gem. Beyond words. Something for everyone. I especially liked the Beehive exhibit, and the treetop walk, even though it swayed a bit. If you...More

Beautiful spot so close to the city. Great for gardeners due to rare plants and knowledgable staff, but equally attractive to the tourist too. It's An oasis on a quiet day, but can get busy in the summer and its a bit pricey, so pick...More

Best is to get the District Line (green line) to Kew Gardens stop - this is the Richmond branch line. It is then a short walk, say 10 mins, from the tube station. Alternatives include National Rail to Kew Bridge station... More

No, never any need to pre-book for a normal day out at Kew - it's huge and there would never be a need to put a cap on the numbers of people entering. However, you'll find it's a few pounds cheaper to book online so... More

Great place for a 3yr old I would see the hive, the pond and the palm green house, all not to far from the entrance. You could also do the hop on hop off tram around the park. It would cut down on a bunch of walking. Have... More
