This place will always keep a special place in my heart for I took my grandson here for a treat in September of 2019 (sometime before covid!) It warmed my brittle heart to say me and my precious grandson bonded so well over the pretty nature and architecture. I highly recommend this to any young sprout as it's such a gem to have locally. I then went again to reminisce a year later but with restrictions on this virus, we couldn't access all areas in the buildings.

Kew Gardens is a magical place it doesn't matter what time of year you go or what the weather is doing as soon as you walk through the gates you are hit by this tranquil peace. It's majestic trees, stunning flowers and beautiful structures are something to be in awe of. No matter how many times you have been you can always find a different pathway a different view and another stunning specimen of plant life.

Of all our local attractions in SW London, membership at Kew is by far the most expensive and least rewarding. It's not uncommon to find rude gate staff, tickets for events sell out quickly, membership discounts are tiny, and their ticketing company for events is not customer friendly. I want to be supportive, but this feels a lot like a one-way relationship, paricularly when other similar venues are more family-friendly. I might have to let this membership lapse, as I don't feel encouraged to visit sadly.

my partner and i visited kew for the first time in september 2019 but decided to return in september 2020 as we had such a pleasant and memorable visit the first time. kew is absolutely stunning, and i will continue to return here over and over! the greenhouses including palm, temperate and princess of wales are gorgeous and probably what kew is best known for, but don't forget about the rest! we visited the great pagoda on our first visit and it offers a great view of the surrounding area but definitely a couple rest stops on the stairs were needed for me! we had to visit the second time to feel satisfied that we'd seen most of the gardens but there were some restrictions in place because of covid, which was a shame but completely necessary. i recommend kew to everyone and i'll continue to return in all seasons.
