What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day or a half-day out at Kew Gardens, London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, located just 30 minutes from central London by Underground and Overground trains. Your ticket includes entry to 326 acres of gardens, 3 art galleries, a treetop walkway, and Kew Palace.
Step inside Kew Palace and explore a beautiful royal retreat comprising the bedrooms of princesses, an intimate dining room, and the newly restored Georgian Royal Kitchens.
The site includes extensive gardens under glass that support a variety of plant life year-round. You’ll be amazed by the giant lily pads in the Waterlily House. Experience an exotic rainforest in the Palm House, and travel through 10 climate zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.
Kew Gardens is fully wheelchair accessible with lifts giving access to the treetop walkway and upper floors of Kew Palace. The Kew Explorer hop-on, hop-off land train makes it easy to enjoy every corner of the gardens and features live commentary. (Note that the cost of the train is not included in the tour and is an additional GBP 4 per person.)
