Time Out says

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a Unesco World Heritage Site that boasts one of the largest and most diverse collections of plants in the world. It also houses over 220,000 artworks relating to flowers, plants and herbs, and you can see some of its best pieces at the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Museum of Art. Rare paintings, ceramics and botanical illustrations dating back to the 17th century are on display.

Look out for paintings depicting the history of European botanical gardens, made by artists like Franz Bauer, the first royal painter at Kew Gardens. The exhibit also has delicate Wedgwood porcelain on display, including some of Queen Charlotte’s favourite pieces. And while you’re here, it’s worth taking a stroll through the Western-style and Japanese gardens too.
