    Kew Gardens is a lovely relaxing place. In the summer, sometimes they do Treetop walks which would be fun for children.

    Even when I visited in winter, when Kew's star is at its dimmest, I could immediately see the magnificence of the place. Sprawling, beautifully manicured, holding tropical treasures in its greenhouse: a thoroughly lovely botanical garden, and a lovely contrast to the congestion of nearby London.

    so pretty! Also great also for kids. They have a great play area and a treetop walkway. You can easily spend the whole day there.

    Have great memories of taking my grandparents there in summer - they absolutely loved it. Thoroughly enjoyable day out especially in summer. They also organise summer concerts which is an amazing experience it not raining!

    I usually go down for the National Archives, but occasionally play hooky on a brilliant day. Beautiful gardens.

    We went to Kew last summer during a bit of strange weather in London and it was nice to be able to enjoy the lush surroundings. We ended up taking shelter in one of the glass houses after a freak supercell dropped ping pong ball sized hail. The food in the cafe was quite good and the "train" ride was great for quickly seeing areas of the gardens that were too far to walk quickly. My only regret was not having enough time to see it all. My wife and daughter just went back a few weeks ago and were able to enjoy some things that couldn't be seen previously. Highly recommended if you have kids.

    Fantastic place, plan ahead to get everything in. A fair bit of walking but worth it. Allow at least 4 hours

    The gardens are spectactular. .Have your walking shoes on because it will take a day to walk through and have a lunch for a break . There are beautful flowers of all kinds and exhibits just amazing to look at. The aromas of the flowers are so diverse and look spectactular.Well worth the time to relax.

    Very large (especially for a city so tight on space) botanical gardens in the south of London. Lovely exhibits across multiple themed areas and buildings displaying the wonders of the floral kingdom. Even plant ignoramouses (of which I am one) will be at least a little impressed. Only underwhelming bit in my view is the the treetop walkway, which is maybe not set amongst dense-enough trees, in my opinion. Nice half-day excursion.

    a little outside of central London but worth the extra 20minutes on the underground. Kew is a gorgeous botanical garden.
