Cancellation policy

These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

Visiting one of London’s most iconic landmarks

If you are looking to get away from the bustling London life for some TLC, then make a stop at Kew Gardens. This beautiful garden was founded by Princess Augusta, mother of King George III, as a haven to get away from the pressures of royal life. Today, it is considered a global scientific institution for studying plant life. First, go to the Great Pagoda, which was constructed by Scottish architect William Chambers as a gift to Princess Augusta. Climb those staggering 253 steps to get to the top for a spectacular view of London. Then, move on to the Temperate House, home to some of the world’s rarest plants such as the climbing shrub and feather-leaved banksia.

A chance to get to know Mother Nature better

But that’s not all. Walk on the Treetop Walkway to soothe your soul and get a special view of various trees and fauna thriving in the Gardens. But a trip to Kew Gardens is impossible without visiting Kew Palace, a Dutch-gabled building situated on the banks of the river Thames and once home to King George III and his family. Don’t forget to check out Queen Charlotte’s Cottage, a quick retreat where she hosted family tea and afternoon picnics.
