Despite having lived in London for over two years, I’d never been to Kew. At a loss for something to do on Sunday, however, I decided to finally visit. I caught a bus from my home in west London which dropped me off outside, however there is also an Underground and Overground service nearby in...

When mum and I climbed from the District line Underground train we discovered a pretty and quaint flower festooned station and what I suppose you would expect from our destination. Mum and I were taking another day out this time choosing the Richmond area as our destination. Mum is a keen...

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...

We have been trying to think of different places to take our daughters during the summer holidays and yesterday we 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...

I am just 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...

ProPlenty to see all year around

ConsCan be expensive

Kew Gardens opens its gates on selected evenings during the winter, allowing visitors to see the famous gardens from a different perspective. Entry is free, although donations are welcome. Sadly this review is a little late for this winter, but hopefully it will be of some use for those...

ProA very pretty and peaceful place

Consonly is it rains

Kew gardens at any time of the year are a good place to visit, away from the hussle and bussle of London, they are a place of peace and quiet. Even in wet weather the greenhouses and pavillions are a good place to visit. The fountains and lake are beautiful and there are miles of well signposted...

ConsCaterers (Sodexho) don't seem to do Kew credit.

I was raised near Kew Gardens and was taken there many times as a child. Years ago it was one old penny to go in there, now it is a fiver although there are concessionary admitance fees. With its 45,000 species of plants there must be something to appeal to everyone at Kew, and the greenhouses...

“Kew OR Queue”

published 02/07/2000

Kew Gardens. Sounds exotic and if you visit the greenhouse exhibits it is. Kew Gardens is one of those places you go to and spend the day. Perhaps it will be difficult to find enough to interest the children so I would recommend you save this for a day as a couple. The gardens are suitable for...

Consmostly outdoors

Kew gardens are fantastic, you've probably heard of them, their reputation is worldwide because of the huge amount of work they do to preserve varieties of plants. Also because English explorers, in the 17th and 18th centuries plundered the mountains, hills, deserts and forests of the world for...
