The Basics

Accessible via hop-on hop-off bus, the botanical gardens at Kew make for an excellent day-out destination. Entrance tickets to Kew Gardens allow visitors to explore the park’s many attractions independently or via an optional guided walking tour. Step into The Hive, a multi-sensory sculpture designed to demonstrate the extraordinary life of bees; traverse a 60-foot-high (18-meter) treetop walkway; explore plants from 10 climate zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory; and stroll through the arboretum, a living library of over 14,000 trees. The London Pass offers entrance to Kew Gardens along with a hop-on hop-off bus tour of other local attractions, such as Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

Beautiful gardens and impressive plant selection

Kew Gardens Entrance Ticket
Kew gardens are beautiful, with an impressive selection of plants from all over the world. Even after 4 hours we had more to explore. Unfortunately covid has impacted the experience with the closure of the treetop walk (which doesn't make sense) and long lines to get into the conservatorium buildings.

Amazing nature experience

Kew Gardens Entrance Ticket
The contrasting temperatures, humidities and wonderful array of plants was so awesome to experience. It I tells a story of so many cultures from around the world that we are not all able to visit but can explore nature at its finest. I would highly recommend Kew gardens for anyone who is interested in any kind of nature, plants or just a day out. I took my girlfriend for our 3rd year anniversary!

It might have been a rainy day but there was still so much to see. Covid friendly eatery was perfect for a sit down away from the showers, conservatories took up most of the day. Definitely will return to concentrate on the outside next time.

I had never been to Kew garden so it was a very pleasant experience. Some of the staff were very helpful and some were not so much. We went to see the Japan exhibition which was disappointing

Kew Gardens Entrance Ticket
The Princess of Wales glass house was fab. The really irritating thing was the ticket fiasco. There was an option to download ticket which then presents something that says this is not a ticket but then says present this ticket???

The whole process was very straight forward and the staff at Kew Gardens were extremely helpful. A few more shelters around the garden would come in useful
