Admire the exotic plants in the Palm House, climb across the Treetop Walkway and walk over the Lake at the stunning Kew Gardens

The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London grows more species in its 121 hectares than any other garden in the world and has a long and distinguished history. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, these magnificent London gardens, glasshouses and galleries are a living exhibit as well as an important historical legacy.

Kew Gardens modern history really begins in the century when Henry VII moved his court to Richmond Palace in the summer months and nearby Kew village flourished. Since 1840 Kew Park has been open to the public and is without a doubt the most impressive London garden.

A stunning sanctuary less than 30 minutes from central London, Kew Gardens is easily accessible on the Underground and Overground lines.

Guided tours of Kew Gardens leave the Victoria Plaza Visitor Centre at 11.00 and 14.00 everyday.

Don't miss a visit to The Hive, an open-air structure standing at 17 metres tall and weighing in at 40 tonnes. The Hive encapsulates the story of the honeybee and the important role of pollination in feeding the planet, through an immersive sound and visual experience with innovation and design. Step inside and discover the secret life of bees!
