You must visit the fantastic location. You can see so many kinds of planets, flowers, roses, and so big trees. The queen's castle...etc. You MUST visit the Orangery restaurant. Good Luck

Well worth the long train ride. The gardens are beautiful. You will need at least 2 to 3 hours to see it all.

Well , I was going to Kew gardens to see Simple Minds but my friend Chris and I decided to actually go around the gardens before seeing the band. I particularly liked The Historic Palm and Temperate Houses with massive trees effectively in an even bigger green house. The whole place has a very oldey worldy feel that makes you... More

Amazing place to visit. Palm house is, quite simply, awesome. Great feeling of peace and quiet, despite a lot of families and children around, the place just seems to soak up visitors and half the time you feel like you have the place to yourself....

These are indeed wonderful gardens with so much to see. We spent 5 hours there, until our legs got weary. We especially loved the Palm House, the Xstrata Treetop Walkway, the quieter parts of the gardens, the Queen's Garden, and especially the Princess of Wales conservatory which was fantastic. Only downside - catering. We lunched at White Peaks - we... More

I visited Kew Gardens a few weeks ago and had a wonderful time walking around the extensive gardens. There is always something interesting to see. This time it was the art galleries which Id always run out of time to see on previous visits. The Shirley Sherwood and Marianne North galleries are well worth seeing, the latter being quite breathtaking.... More

Beautifully kept gardens and lovely walks, the only downside was the price of food and drinks and gifts and plants!!! We had a chicken pie and salad in the Plaza it was awful and we were hungry in minutes. The tea was very dear, so too was the afternoon cakes, and the Orangery shut at 4.00pm, why? It was a... More
