you pay for all day no matter how long you go in for. So go in early, see as much as you want then leave to see another attraction, come back later to see the plants in a different light

This was a wonderful visit which lasted for about two hours. There are some interesting glass houses to walk around and some beautiful grounds alongside the river.

The flower beds are beautiful - some are meadow like.

You can walk around or just sit and relax and take in the beauty.

This was great value for money, there was so much to see. Some of the flower beds were just spectacular. A mixture of colours gave the gardens lots of life.

This is a lovely place to visit and sit amongst the flowers, the smell is wonderful. If you go early evening its much quieter. and the butterflies are all around

My wife and I are Friends of Kew so can get in here for free. We brought friends here last week and told them 45 minutes would be enough but we were here for well over an hour as although there are only a few acres it is crammed with plenty of unusual plants.

The glasshouses are compact but there was a lot to see including a great deal of fruit and flowers. The herbaceous borders were superb and you can also enjoy watching others punt along the river Cherwell while you stroll.

The highlight of our visit though were the fruit and vegetable plots and the nearby large beds filled with drought resistant 'wild' flowers which are being managed with minimal intervention and were producing a stupendous display.
