About Royal Botanic Gardens
Renowned for being the largest collection of living plants on the planet, it’s no surprise that Kew Gardens in Richmond upon Thames is one of the top attractions in London and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Established in 1840, it is home to more than 30,000 species of plants on 121 hectares of gardens. Over 100 attractions at Kew Gardens include iconic buildings, botanical glasshouses, inspirational gardens and landscapes.
Popular experiences include the Treetop Walkway offering spectacular views; summer tours of Kew Palace; the baobab trees, orchids and carnivorous plants inside the Princess of Wales Conservatory; the elegant and steamy Victorian-era Palm House; and the stunning 300-year-old bluebell woods surrounding Queen Charlotte's Cottage.
