Kew Gardens & Palace Tickets

Kew Gardens is London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most famous gardens in the World!

With lots to see and do for visitors of all ages, it’s a perfect day out for the whole family.

Wander along the Gardens’ towering tree-top walkway or stroll through the 326-acres of land, where you’ll find plenty of peaceful spots to enjoy a picnic or just relax!

Even if the weather is less than perfect there’s still plenty to explore, with 3 stunning galleries dedicated to botanical art, plus a variety of glasshouses and other indoor attractions.

Delve into a tropical rainforest in the Palm house, be amazed by the giant lily pads in the waterlily house and travel through 10 climate zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory. Don’t miss the Bonsai House and secluded Garden Glasshouse.

Kew gardens is also home to Queen Charlotte’s Cottage - the royal family’s beloved rustic retreat and the place where many intimate family picnics took place.

The Hive 

Did you know 70 out of 100 crops that provide 90% of the world’s food are pollinated by bees?

Soaring 17 metres in the air and adorned with hundreds of glowing LED lights, the award-winning installation The Hive is now open at Kew Gardens.

The sound and light intensity within The Hive is triggered through vibration sensors inside a real beehive, and you can hear the live activity of worker bees going about their business, so every visit to The Hive is different!

This 40-tonne lattice structure creates an incredible multi-sensory experience of what it’s like to be inside a real bee hive, and explores the vital role of bees in feeding our planet.

Entry to The Hive is included with your admission ticket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab day out No issues with the tickets and the Gardens are well worth a visit. We arrived at 10:30am and left at 4pm so spent pretty much the full day there. There is so much to see that we will definitely be visiting again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing day Considering I purchased tickets in February, I had no idea that there would be large areas cornered off under construction. A considerable amount of re-planting was still to be finished so there were less floral displays than expected. The fact that you cannot enter the gardens via the Brentwood gate from the car park is not beneficial to elderly visitors, my mother and I had to walk all the way back around to the front gate, then when we tried to find the Brentford gate to leave, there were no signs to direct us so we walked further than necessary on what was a very hot day. The only saving grace to the visit was the coffee and cake I purchased in the orangery, although my mother's cake was very dry and unappealing. Suffice to say we were very disppointed with what should have been a relaxing pleasant day amongst flora and fauna.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice place to spend a summer day. I went there with several friends a few days back, and had a nice day out in the Sun. Specifically enjoyed the tree top walk and the hive. The palace was special attraction as well. This is a place, all who visit London will enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Day Out Went straight to ticket office, they took paperwork and printed out tickets. Explained what wasn't open at the time and what time it would be open from. We went on a very hot day and it was nice to see that there were places where you could refill your water bottles. Had a great time exploring the gardens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth visit We went just before they opened the second green house. Sorry we missed opening.however still enjoyed what we did see. There some fantastic trees and great rock garden. Only down side not enough rock pants for sale and price of plants are way to exspensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful day in the picturesque surroundings! It was worth every penny Planning to only go for an hour to enjoy the parklands- I was surprised and impresses by how much there was to see. A beautiful park with many interesting and amazing green houses, sculptures and stunning florals. Spent half a day there and truly felt that I'd got back to nature and let my day to day stresses go. Lots of lovely picnic spots between the blossoms and easily accessible facilities and cafes. I'll certainly be coming again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I bought tickets for my partner and myself as we were having a weekend away. I love gardening and have wanted to go to Kew for a while. I wasn’t disappointed. Kew was beautiful, even though it was a wet weekend spring weather wise, the rain held off and the wind calmed for our visit. We stopped to have lunch in the restaurant which had a good choice of freshly cooked food served by friendly staff. Will return in the summer to see the gardens in full colour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth a visit We visited Kew early April and enjoyed the gardens, although we might have been a bit early in the growing season. The palace and its history was very interesting.
