I loved visiting Kew Gardens so much that I became a member. A beautiful place to visit no matter the time of year but especially delightful in the Summer. You can explore for hours; from the warm ferns in Palm House to the heady heights of the Treetop walkway there is plenty for you to see and do.
My favourite, is their latest installation, The Hive. A unique multi-sensory experience that will find you forever in awe of the life of bees and what they bring to our world.
As London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage site there are beautiful landscapes, vistas and fantastic architecture to take in never mind the diverse range of living plants within Kew’s greenhouses and nurseries.
At £14 a ticket, it’s not the cheapest but you can spend a whole day there and if it is a nice dry day I would recommend taking a picnic for lunch and enjoying the beautiful sights that Kew has to offer. For those who can’t walk vast distances, for £5 you can buy a ticket for the Kew Explorer Land Train, which will take you to all the main points within the garden.
