About Kew Palace & Gardens
Few attractions offer the variety and spectacle of Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew where 326 acres, four of them under glass, contain the world's largest and most diverse collection of living plants, with over 30,000 types of plants represented. The famous glasshouses ensure a fascinating visit even in winter: the world's oldest living pot plant in the Palm House, ten climatic zones - from steamy rain forest to arid desert- in the Princess of Wales Conservatory and exquisite mountain terrain plants in the Davies Alpine House. In February the Princess of Wales Conservatory is transformed for Kew's annual Tropical Extravaganza with spectacular displays of orchids and other exotic flowering plants. Heritage trees dating back to the 18th century can be seen in Kew's arboretum while the Rhizotron and Xstrata Treetop Walkway gives a bird's-eye view of the surrounding tree canopy.
Kew Palace (open April to September) offers visitors a rare insight into the domestic life of George III and his family. A tour on the Kew Explorer land train allows visitors to hop on and off throughout the tour at any of its seven stops or to relax during the full 40 minute tour to the furthest corners of the Gardens. There are three art galleries to enjoy including the country's only gallery devoted to botanical art. Kew has four catering outlets providing a range of freshly prepared food to suit all tastes. Discounted meal vouchers available to groups to buy in advance. There are two shops stocking a range of quality products, many exclusive to Kew.
