About Kew Gardens from 1st Apr

The Kew Gardens in London is among the world’s most famous gardens! This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts the largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world, making it one of London’s top tourist destinations. Get Kew Gardens tickets on TodayTix!

The sprawling campus takes visitors inside King George III’s country home, the princess’ bedrooms, and the historic Palm House. All of this, of course, is accompanied by the botanical collection’s 50,000 plants, which span ten topographical regions, from the tropics to water lily ponds.

The Kew Gardens is a must-see for any London visitor, though locals also stop by repeatedly as exhibits evolve and change.

The gardens were founded in 1840, affording the site a rich history in and of itself across the attraction’s sweeping 300 acres. Rolling along the Thames River in Southwest London, the Kew Gardens offers many iconic views and gorgeous vistas from the Lake Crossing, Alpine House, and, most recently, The Hive, whose 2016 opening celebrated the buzzing life of bees in multisensory splendor. There’s also a romantic canopy walkway and even a compost heap, one of the largest in Europe.

The Kew Gardens afford over a million visitors yearly beautiful sights (and smells) as they roam 121 hectares of diverse flora. Complete with conservatories and ponds aplenty, the gardens are home to thousands of species, royal residencies, and exhibits that switch out to keep the experience fresh.

Whether you are coming for the first time or the 100th, there is plenty to take in: the Princess of Wales Conservatory, featuring multiple habitats and the unique plants that grow in them, is a highlight, as is the Palm House, the first greenhouse of its enormous scale to be completed.

What to Watch For

  • Soar 660 feet above the ground and walk through the treetop walkway, which takes visitors through a glade of canopies. The exhibit and architectural feat gently sway in the wind as part of its ergonomic design.
  • Designed by Sir William Chambers in 1761, the Orangery was initially used as a conservatory for citrus foods, which are now on the menu at the present-day restaurant.
  • At over 50,000 square feet, the Temperate House is essentially a reverential museum to plant life. Restored in 2018, the structure is the world’s largest surviving Victorian glass structure.
  • Ten storeys high, the Pagoda has 253 spiraling steps that take you up to the viewing gallery for photo-ready vistas.
