  • A lovely day spent relaxing and walking around the gardens, we spent the whole day here and walked until our feet were sore! Well worth the entrance fee however beware the cost of food and drink...

  • Great way to spend the day if you have time. The rock garden and bonzi are great. Plan on spending some time here as you will need a whole day as there is so much to see.

  • Amazing place.. have supporting them for few years and will continue to do so.. love it.. 🥰🥰 Since everyone is rating the place, I would like to rate my experience there yesterday.. My cinema experience.. 😍😍 They have launched an open air cinema.. I would love to say I admire the high standard delivered.. Superb.. Everything was perfect.. I have had several experiences with open air cinema, and I can confirm this was the best.. Thank you very much for making us enjoy our evening.. Thanks for all your effort (love the fact you provided umbrellas).. 💛💛💛
  • An incredible day out at Kew Gardens is perfect for all the family. There is so much to see and exhibitions on offer. Check before what is on the day and the opening times of some places. Amazing to have a picnic and relax with a book. Highly recommend bringing food and drinks. Would love to see more water refill locations.
