It was great beautiful the hand of God exists in this garden. Only regretable thing is that it was very cold sleeted and snowed the day we went.

Kew gardens was a lovely experience. Not a lot was blooming, but the autumn displays were really inventive and beautiful. Having our entry paid in advance made it really easy. Thank you.

While this isn't a tour as such it's a great way of getting into Kew Gardens far cheeper than paying at the gate.

Being blessed with perfect weather we had a wondeful visit. Grounds fantastic, Palm house lovely and even more interesting is the temperate house as it is being prepared to move plants and close for a 5yr refurb, so hurry up and go before the summer. Saved over £10 on tickets for 2 using Vitor!
