Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens house the largest collection of plants from around the globe and should be included in your London itinerary if you have the slightest interest in the gifts of nature. If you’ve been growing your own tomatoes you will be thrilled to see some of the oldest and most impressive glasshouses which are home to exotic plants from any climate zone that exists on earth.

 

But Kew has a lot more to offer than just botanical masterpieces. It is home to the smallest royal palace in Britain, Kew Palace. This is where mentally ill king George III lived with his family in 1800s and was hoping to recover using Kew’s natural gifts. The Royal Kitchen where George’s dinners were made was only recently open to the public.

 

Kew is also an arts space. Just look at Henry Moore’s sculpture Reclining Mother and Child and browse an art gallery of famous British painter Marianne North.

 

It is also a treasure-trove for Eastern culture enthusiasts. Japanese Gateway and Chinese Pagoda are the finest examples of respective architectural styles in Europe.

 

And finally it is a perfect place for a family outing. Take your kids to the Treetop Walkway to see London from above or visit indoor botanical playzone.
