Only a KM or so from the train station these Gardens are easily accessible. The Gardens are huge, 300 Acres or so. Obviously you aren't going to cover even a portion of this so you really need to give the exhibits at least 1/2 a...More

Visited here. All was good apart from the fact that the main cafe was closed for refurbishment work and we had to use a hut as am alternative. The kew explorer was very good with interesting commentary and the 2 galleries were interesting too.

Kew Gardens is huge and you defiantly cannot see it all unless you stay the whole day. Good for families, lots of things for kids to do. The park is clean, tidy and well kept but needs better signage.

Love Kew Gardens. With the leaves glowing it’s a great time of year to visit. So much to see. Walk in the tree tops gives great views but only go up if you don’t mind walking on wobbly structures that sway! Will be back again.

Visited last Saturday, at the end of half-term, with our two children (11 and 8). Arrived at about 9.40am to make sure we got a parking space, but the car park was empty. Cost £7... Could probably have parked along the road nearby, although it...More

Yes, there will be so much to see indoors in all the greenhouses. Kew Palace is also worth a visit.
