My girlfriend and I took her grandparents for a day trip to Kew Gardens and all had a great day out, there was so much to do and see that we'll definitely be going back again as we barely saw a fraction of it. So much thought has been put into the entire place that it caters for all needs, interests and tastes. You feel transported to a different country just 20 minutes on the train out of London.

My parents from USA toured the garden with me and they loved it very much as the garden itself preserved and cared for the living plants from all over the world .,.,.,,...A good place for everybody to visit .,.,.

Claudia Baptista

A good place to spend the day. The gardens are so big that I didn't manage to see all, since I arrived there after lunch time, but I loved every moment. From the cafés to the diferent kinds of gardens and the shop it was really lovely. Probably a little bit pricy since we were 2 adults and the ticket doesn't include anything else (not the ride on the little train for e.g.), but I enjoyed every moment.
