An amazing place to visit. The gardens are so vast you see something different every time you visit. Even better now that the Temperate House has re opened and I love The Orangery for lunch.

What a delightful place to visit and gain knowledge of yester years. The volunteers are knowledgeable and helpful and there is a lift for those needing a little help.

This is a very nice place to visit in Kew Botanical Gardens. You can visit it with the Kew Botanical Gardens ticket, don't need to purchase another one. Very nice place and some rooms also have an eerie feel.

Well for free it has to be! OK there's a donation box and an overpriced guide book, but the determined miser needn't pay a bean. So, it's a nice house - I'd be very happy to live there, the rooms are well proportioned and it's...More

As a combination of Royal Palace and gardens Kew is a sort of Versailles in reverse. Whereas the home of Louis XIV completely dominates the spacious grounds in which it sits, George III's palace at Kew is sufficiently to have been subsumed into a small...More
