What a place this is...... we were there all day recently and we didn't see half of it. Recommend the glass houses, the hive and the bonsai house amongst others. Looking forward to going back again

We were in the gardens for a concert so having never been round the Royal Botanicals, decided to take a look around. Despite not being a gardening type, I have to say it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

13th July 2018: A family visit (ages from 24 to 63) and all loved this special place. It's great for just a wander amongst the parkland trees; but it would be a shame to miss the various pavilions. The Temperate House has just been renovated,...More

Give yourself plenty of time and do visit the palm house and the temperate house. Also the pagoda - I didn't climb it as it was yet to open.

I am not entirely certain how far the overground station was from the gardens . The underground is certainly within walking distance I would not attempt to drive as parking around the gardens is at a premium! Hope you enjoy... More

There is a nice pub called Top of the Line right near the Kew Gardens tube and Overground. If you have lunch there, I am sure they might check your bags for a couple of hours.
