What a spectacular venue for an open air music concert. The whole organisation of this event was perfect. Areas clesy marked out for people with rugs or with picnic chairs. Plenty of room for everyone. Plenty of clean fresh toilet facilities that there was no need to "kew" for !!! A short overly stroll through the grounds to teach the... More

As always the band makes up the majority of you having a good time or not - and SIMPLE MINDS will deliver on that score every time. So to the venue - brilliant too. Hot summer night (the threatened thunder storms stayed away), food, drink, dancing........ very well organised, quick entrance and exit........ standing/sitting zones well marked-out with a dancing...

We love this place and although at home we are not far from the countryside nothing compares to a visit to Kew. The magnificence of the trees cannot be overstated. The grounds are extensive, as one would expect, and immaculately maintained. The floral displays change with the seasons and offset the buildings and water features. The facilities are good with...

Visited Kew in evening for music event (Jools Holland). Excellent event well marshalled and great selection of food and drink but most people took their own picnic. However - was v fed up that I'd paid for parking (using park at my house) and all the streets were FREE after 10am Mon-Sat!

We came when there were some special charlie and chocolate factory events (all very good) The gardens themselves are huge and beautiful. We came when the gardens opened and left when it closed. The price to get in is very very good. The food is a little pricy but only the same as most London attractions. The quality was very... More

Kew Garders proves why cites need green spaces! Spent a wonderful summer afternoon here strolling the eastern half curing the jet lag. Next trip will cure the lag in the eastern half. If you are looking for a wonderful day out pack a picnic pull on the shoes, go for a stroll and just let the mind wander. You may... More

Fantastic day out for all the family, lots to do and see. The walkway is a great experience, to see the sites from the top off the trees. The bus that travels around the gardens, though wheelchair accessible could not decide if a small electric should be let on, then said no. Why do they have three big bins in... More
