A beautiful place to visit at any time of the year and not just for the gardens. In addition to the botanical side of the site there are also The Hive and the Treewalk. The Hive is a modern sculpture of around 160000 pieces which...More

I had never been to Kew Gardens before and I was pleasantly surprised. The gardens were beautifully well kept. We had lunch at the restaurant which was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

A bit expensive (14£ for students) but totally worth it. Place is huge, you easily spend the whole afternoon there. There are a lot for hidden places and historic spots to see. Strongly recommend it.
