Hortus Kew, oh forget the Latin, its Kew Gardens! Review with images

AdvantagesHorticulture at its best a delight for all the family

Disadvantagescan be expensive and your feet will ache

"...nicknamed Farmer George. He chose Kew Palace and the grounds as a home to his family outside of court. George was isolated at Kew during his madness until his recovery. In 1840 the gardens became a national Botanical Gardens. Queen Victoria gave numerous buildings to the gardens and eventually it was extended from its original 75 acres into the gardens we have today In the big storm of 1987 some of the old trees around the lawn behind the Water ..."

'Kew' to get in if you have to Review with images

AdvantagesLots to do for all the family

DisadvantagesYou need an interest in plants to really get the best out of it

"...nearby in the form of Kew Gardens station (you could also try wombling free – sorry, bad joke). Though Kew opens at 9.30 am in the summer, I didn’t get there until 1 pm, and wished I had turned up earlier as there was a bit of a queue – I only had to wait around fifteen minutes, however. Kew is huge – the site covers 132 hectares (326 acres) and there is a lot to see. It is possible to take the ""Kew Explorer"", a kind of open bus, around the gardens, ..." Read review

Kew Gardens - a little piece of paradise Review with images

AdvantagesStunning gardens, iconic greenhouses, fun for children, a break from city life

DisadvantagesNoise from the planes overhead, food can be expensive

"Kew Gardens is one of my favourite places to spend a day, especially in summer when we can take a picnic, spread out on the grass by the lake and just enjoy the relative peace and tranquility of it all (I say relative because it's on the flight path so you do get some noise from the planes passing overhead). We have an annual pass and it is a short bus ride from home, so I often find myself heading there with the children on a sunny day when we’ve ..." Read review

and I thought it was just a couple of greenhouses!

AdvantagesA fabulous place to visit

Disadvantagesnone

"...decided to take them to Kew Gardens. It's a place that I have never visited before (even though it is only a forty five minute drive from where we live) and I did not really know what to expect. To be honest, I thought it was just going to be loads of plants in a few large greenhouses and I was a little worried that my daughters might soon get bored. How wrong could I be? There are various different entrances to Kew Gardens but we entered through ..." Read review

I love Kew, I do!

AdvantagesIt's a world heritage site, loads to see

Disadvantagesshame it's on the flightpath....

"...back from a trip to Kew Gardens, not my first by a long shot, but each and every time I go I find something new to see. I have been visiting Kew for over ten years now. I used to live nearby and visit on nearly a weekly basis but now that I live farther away I still like to pop back to this little oasis of green in South West London, which has more to offer than you might imagine. It is more than just a garden and there are a wealth of things to see ..." Read review
