The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew Admission Ticket


When in London, you don’t want to miss the fresh and fragrant air of “The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew”. Stroll along a walkway high up in the treetops, and explore acres of gardens under glass. Step inside a royal palace, discover galleries of botanical art and experience 250 years of royal history at Kew Gardens, London’s largest World Heritage Site.

About The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

Enjoy a full day out at Kew Gardens, London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, located just 30 minutes from central London by Underground and Overground trains. Your ticket includes entry to 326 acres of gardens, 3 art galleries, a treetop walkway, and Kew Palace.  Step inside Kew Palace and explore a beautiful royal retreat comprising the bedrooms of princesses, an intimate dining room, and the newly restored Georgian Royal Kitchens. The site also includes extensive gardens under glass that support a variety of plant life year-round.

See the giant lily pads in the Waterlily House, then experience an alluring rainforest in the Palm House. Afterwards, travel through 10 climate zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.  Other highlights include the Arboretum. Standing 17 meters tall and constructed from 170,000 aluminium parts and 1,000 LED lights, the Hive structure mimics the visual and sound effects of an actual beehive in Kew Gardens.

Learn all about the extraordinary life of bees, and the vital role they play in the health of the planet. And finally, round off your visit at one of the site’s cafes and restaurants that serve hot meals and classic afternoon teas (not included).
