Departure Point

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Herbarium Kew Green, Kew, Richmond-upon-Thames TW9 3AE England
Discover the exquisite beauty of London’s beloved Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and its key attractions. Make your own way to Kew Gardens to begin your tour, breeze through the entrance with your pre-purchased ticket and while away the hours in this massive UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the flexibility of setting your own pace and itinerary with an independent tour, or join a free guided walking tour for an informative look at some of the rare and exotic plants that blanket the 326-acre (121-hectare) site.

Admire beautifully manicured landscapes at the Azalea Garden, Minka House, Bamboo Garden and Queen’s Garden, home of Kew’s oldest sculptures. Explore the elaborate walkways that course through the park; weave thorough the crowns of oak trees on the Rhizotron and Xstrara Treetop Walkway or meander down the sun-dappled Holly Walk to spot 130-year-old trees.

As you wander, visit monumental buildings like the Royal Kew Palace and the 10-story Pagoda, a gorgeous octagonal structure in the southwest corner of the park. Head into the Temperate House – an original Victorian glasshouse – to view sub-tropical flora including the massive Chilean Wine Palm. Stop along the way to rest in a quaint sitting nook or head to one of the estate’s four cafés for lunch or tea (own expense). 
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Head inside Kew Gardens and then spend as little or as much time as you like exploring London’s finest botanical gardens. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kew Gardens consists of acres of tranquil grounds with one of the world’s largest collections of plants. Either walk around at leisure or join one of the free guided walking tours that take place daily in the gardens. Stroll around admiring highlights like the Azalea Garden, Minka House and Bamboo Garden in the center of the park. Check out the 17th century-style Queen’s Garden near Kew Palace (also known as the Dutch House), and see several of Kew’s oldest sculptures that were donated by the British Royal Family. Perhaps take a walk along the Rhizotron and Xstrara Treetop Walkway, and stroll through the crowns of oak trees at a height of 59 feet (18m), seeing birdlife, fungi and lichen up close. Watch out for the 10-storey Pagoda in the southwest corner of the gardens, and wander along the Holly Walk, seeing trees that have grown there for over 130 years. Bask in balmy tropical temperatures inside Temperate House – the world’s largest surviving Victorian glasshouse – and see a spectacular array of African plants and sub-tropical trees and palms. In the center of the beautiful building is a Chilean Wine Palm, which is said to be one of the world’s tallest indoor plants. With plenty of leafy picnic areas, as well as four cafés on site, you can eat lunch inside the gardens (own expense), or simply sit down and relax in between seeing all the rich flora and fauna.

Wonderful day, lots of photos. Prices should be lower considering I pay tax therefore feel I'm paying twice to something I own.

A pleasant escape from lockdown to an internationally renowned attraction. A haven of solitude and cultural enjoyment. Map provided but better signposting would have been appreciated. Tree-top walk unfortunately closed.

There were so many things not open (eg Tree Top walk)or restricted (most of the indoor places were restricted and many areas cordoned off) and this wasn’t explained when I booked. In hindsight, I’d say it’s best to wait until lockdown restrictions have lifted and then still check with Kew if all areas are open.

Haven’t been for many years but will come back very soon. Too much to take in in just one day. Love the grand vistas and the flower borders were fantastic to see. Found the food very expensive bit didn’t mar the day too much.
