A must-see at any time of year, for its constantly changing flora and fauna. Back when I was a kid, you used to be able to get in for half a penny. Those days are long gone. Try and spend a day here, taking a picnic.

One of my most favorite places to hangouts in London. There’s so much to explore in the conservatories!

Kew gardens are beautiful in any time of the year, there are several very large tropical glass houses for rainy days, and a great playground.
Bus 65 takes you from the house right to the gate

Kew Garden is for tourists interested in horticulture science. Kew Garden has rarest of rare species of plants and tress.

Nice place to visit and defiitniley worth checking out, the only downside for my partner and I was the plane engine noise overhead every two minutes.

The original botanical garden and there is always plenty to see and do here. Pretty expensive to get in though. Worth going in 2015 and 2016 to see "The Hive" - an interactive art installation about bees.

Beautiful and extensive botanic gardens though a little on the pricey side. There are a couple of large greenhouses if the weather turns but of course most is outside. Food options are pricey too so best to plan ahead and take a picnic. On the up side there is a very good shop.

This is considered the world's largest collection of living plants. It is massive park, and have different indoor and outdoor areas and themes. You can see gigantic trees that dates back to 1700s.

There is also a big shop at the exit to buy different plants and seeds.

Park entry is not free. However you can buy membership if you intend to go more than once and that will be more economic.

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!

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.

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.
