What To Expect

Discover the exquisite beauty of London’s beloved Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and its key attractions. Make your own way to Kew Gardens to begin your tour, breeze through the entrance with your pre-purchased ticket and while away the hours in this massive UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the flexibility of setting your own pace and itinerary with an independent tour, or join a free guided walking tour for an informative look at some of the rare and exotic plants that blanket the 326-acre (121-hectare) site.

Admire beautifully manicured landscapes at the Azalea Garden, Minka House, Bamboo Garden and Queen’s Garden, home of Kew’s oldest sculptures. Explore the elaborate walkways that course through the park; weave thorough the crowns of oak trees on the Rhizotron and Xstrara Treetop Walkway or meander down the sun-dappled Holly Walk to spot 130-year-old trees.

As you wander, visit monumental buildings like the Royal Kew Palace and the 10-story Pagoda, a gorgeous octagonal structure in the southwest corner of the park. Head into the Temperate House – an original Victorian glasshouse – to view sub-tropical flora including the massive Chilean Wine Palm. Stop along the way to rest in a quaint sitting nook or head to one of the estate’s four cafés for lunch or tea (own expense).

The outdoor rockery and the indoor tropical plants no toilet facilities available but what we were able to see was really good
Everywhere you looked you saw beauty and wonder - the Hive is a must as well as the palm house and the Princess of Wales
A pleasant escape from lockdown to an internationally renowned attraction.

Kew Gardens Entrance Ticket
Michael_S, Jan 2023
Kew Gardens is spectacular-even in the winter. I am sure during the garden season it is incredible!!

Better signage required
Katherine_W, Nov 2022
The sign for the car park was tiny and we missed it the first time. We were very disappointed that neither the Temperate Glasshouse nor the tree top walkway were open, which was not mentioned when we arrived. Apart from that, we enjoyed our visit.
Wonderful Gardens, but the Viator ticket was a problem.
SueGee, Jul 2022
The Entrance ticket provided by Viator was difficult to exchange at the box office at Kew Gardens. It took a long time for the ticket officer to find the reference and enter it. I was worried that the voucher I had paid for might not be honoured. In future I will book directly with the company or attraction.
I booked St Paul's...
Karen_A, Jul 2022
I booked St Paul's cathedral and Kew Gardens with you, the latest booking at Kew Gardens is 1h00. St Paul only opens at 10:00 we were there at 10:00, we cut our tour short to try and make it to Kew Gardens by 1h00,but this is impossible, so halfway on the way there decided to give up as we would not make it in time, we canceled but were refused a refund, this is unacceptable as we booked both with your company, you should have known and warned us that it is impossible to make both attractions in one day. Very disappointed. And will never book with Viator again.
Waste of a trip.
Daisy_Y, Jun 2022
I turned up with two friends and we were refused entrance because we weren’t with an adult. No mention of this restriction on the booking site. Wasted an entire day. Very disappointed.

Amazing gardens and walks...
Hasmukh_M, May 2022
Amazing gardens and walks and facility was excellent. Great for family and couples. Had a really great day out wind weather was fantastic.
Orchids galore!
Lindsay_W, Feb 2022
The orchid exhibition was gorgeous just walking through room after room of vibrant colour and beauty Loved the Hive and walking in the tree tops!
Amazing nature experience
Aron_J, Dec 2021
The contrasting temperatures, humidities and wonderful array of plants was so awesome to experience. It I tells a story of so many cultures from around the world that we are not all able to visit but can explore nature at its finest. I would highly recommend Kew gardens for anyone who is interested in any kind of nature, plants or just a day out. I took my girlfriend for our 3rd year anniversary!
Princess of Wales glass house
Eric_T, Dec 2021
The Princess of Wales glass house was fab. The really irritating thing was the ticket fiasco. There was an option to download ticket which then presents something that says this is not a ticket but then says present this ticket???

Kew gardens looked...
Lesley_J, Nov 2021
Kew gardens looked amazing. Most people were wearing masks in the green houses and staff were extremely helpful a great birthday treat.
Beautiful day
monica_s, Nov 2021
Very happy to have visited the gardens but them on a Sunday not one stall was opened and gave us little time to sit down and enjoy the views. Maybe next time they should keep the food stalls opened even on a Sunday! Lovely day though, we will definitely be going there again in the summer or Christmas time evening best
a pleasant experience
JUDITH_W, Oct 2021
I had never been to Kew garden so it was a very pleasant experience. Some of the staff were very helpful and some were not so much. We went to see the Japan exhibition which was disappointing

A super day out in beautiful surrounds
Ann_H, Oct 2021
We loved the walk round the tops of the trees. We loved the Japanese garden. We were fortunate to have a lovely lady called B who showed us round and told us lots of information about the gardens.
Day out
Beverley_C, Oct 2021
The whole process was very straight forward and the staff at Kew Gardens were extremely helpful. A few more shelters around the garden would come in useful
Great walk round
Carol_S, Sep 2021
A great garden with lots to see we walked about 12 miles while looking round, the only thing we didn’t like was the toilets all the sinks were blocked and there was water everywhere
Kew Gardens-splendid
Lynn_B, Sep 2021
The hot houses, absolutely amazing!! We spent 4 hours could have done more but only in London for a few days.
Outstanding gardens. Lovely day
Denise_L, Sep 2021
Outstanding gardens. Lovely day. Lots to see and experience. Lots of walking and cafes to break up inbetween
Good value for money
Keith_R, Sep 2021
Been able to see the gardens all day without rushing and easy entry to them. The staff were very helpful.
Our visit to Kew
Alison_H, Sep 2021
The whole experience, liked the water lilies particularly and and rock garden and waterfall. It was a hot day but there was plenty of shade. We told the train ride which filled in the gaps we hadn’t managed to get to on foot, it highlighted what we missed and enabled us to head towards the other areas we wanted to explore.
