With 326 acres, four of which are under a glass, Kew Botanical Gardens contains the world’s largest and most diverse collection of living plants, with over 30,000 types of plants represented. The famous glasshouses ensure a fascinating visit even in winter, with ten climatic zones – from steamy rain forest to arid desert – in the Princess of Wales Conservatory and exquisite mountain terrain plants in the Davies Alpine House.
Kew Palace – open from April to September – offers visitors a rare insight into the domestic life of King George III and his family. A tour on the Kew Explorer land train allows visitors to hop on and off throughout the tour at any time or to relax during the full tour to the furthest corners of the Gardens. There are also three art galleries to enjoy, including the country’s only gallery devoted to botanical art.
