Whether you are fascinated by the diversity of ecology or the quirky history of Mad Royals like King George, Kew gardens has enough to keep you fascinated for days. A special day out to enjoy within, and majestic, long river walks just outside the grounds.

This was my 10+ visit, and it always produces the goods. Went to see Wind in the Willows. Absolutely brilliant. Great cast, fun story line and a very happy son, who wants to go back next week! We'll be returning for the Christmas lights!!

Kew has something for everyone: flowers, a walkway in the trees, rolling lawns, steamy palm house, art galleries, a palace, human sized badger sett and more. We spent three hours there and only saw a bit. 100% recommended.

The gardens are incredibly beautiful and it's amazing to see the varieties of plant life, lots of places to explore. The food is really expensive (at least the Orangery), especially on top of the ticket price, so pack yourself a picnic.

You really need a full day to see most of it. I was there from the gates opening at 10 and left at 4 and saw everything I wanted to, knowing I would come back later in the year
