Kew Gardens, London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the ideal place to get away from the city’s bustle. It’s the ideal day out, with the world’s most diversified collection of living plants and an internationally renowned scientific research center.
Discover stunning glasshouses such as the famed Palm House with its exotic rainforest, the Princess of Wales Conservatory with its 10 climatic zones, and the Waterlily House with its incredible, enormous lily pads.
The 59ft (18m) high Treetop Walkway, which soars into the tree canopy and provides a bird’s-eye perspective of the gardens, is popular with visitors of all ages. Take a stroll around the Great Broad Walk Borders, which are home to over 60,000 species, and visit Kew Palace, King George III’s historic summer palace.
