We travel from Norwich two or three times a year to see Kew Gardens this time to visit the new temperate house after the major refurbishment. The whole place is worth the visit on its own but the grounds are starting to look fabulous in...More

We caught the train and got off at Kew garden station, then a short walk to the gardens. Very pleasant lady at the pay area, then we spent about 6 hours walking and caught the train around the gardens. Definitely worth going into all the...More

5*+ for the gardens but 3* for the restaurant. Will address the restaurant first to assist travellers. The choice was very lacking: giant sausage rolls (vegetarian or Cumberland sausage), soup, limited sandwiches or cakes (which were plentiful). The sausage rolls were £5.50 & the cakes...More
