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 Tree Top 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).
Great to get to the Gardens, see the long queue, and just book with Viator through the TripAdvisor app and be able to skip the line! We had a lovely day, it's a wonderful place.

This tour was amazing!
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.
Excellent, great value for money. Beautiful place with good food and facilities. virtually spent all day wandering around this magnificent, historical site. Would highly recommend.

Reserve a full day for your visit here. The exhibits and grounds are wonderful. Don't forget to bring your camera!
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.
Excellent, really perfect to see the gardens and ideal for picnics! (they are allowed). A good idea to celebrate your birthday there and see the royal gardens!

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.
