We made it to Kew Gardens even though it was a long journey by municipal government. It was a nice trip and we felt we got to see a lot of the "real" London on the way there. Once inside the garden we were put off by how big it was. It felt like we could go on and on and on without ever ending. Everything was so beautiful and it was fun to read the names of all the trees, many really big and old, as we walked through the park. I love botanical gardens and so does my eleven year old son. He sleeps that you feel so peaceful around flowers and trees. I wish I could see how it would turn out in the summer or spring when everything has just worked out.

We had a great day out and good weather. There was more than enough to see in a day - i.e. 10.30 to 17.00. Highly recommended. The only slight downside was the apparent unavailability of the Mexican food in the restaurant (it was advertised as part of a Mexican theme exhibition).

Went with my 3.5 yr old son. Both he and I enjoyed everything. From the art exhibition to the pagoda, and the lakes to the lillypads, the beautiful trees and greenhouses it was a truly inspiring, interesting, and a great learning experience. We spent over 6hrs in the fresh air discovering new things. There is so much to do and see. We are constantly reminded we live in a special world, if we only make the time to actually see it. Really recommend it.
