Kew Gardens is London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the most diverse collection of living plants anywhere in the world. Just 30 minutes by train from central London, it offers a unique day out for visitors of all ages.
Discover glorious glasshouses containing plants from around the globe, stroll along a soaring treetop walkway high in the tree canopy or step back in time to Georgian times in Kew Palace and the Royal Kitchens. Head through the doors of Kew’s spectacular Temperate House, revealing 10,000 breath‐taking plants, making this magnificent structure the true jewel in it’s crown – an architectural wonder, horticulturists’ haven, the most captivating of classrooms. The Great Broad Walk borders provide a dazzling display of colour in the summer months and The Hive is a stunning example of how art can educate – highlighting the vital role that bees play in pollinating the world’s crop species.
