Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew), London: 52 reviews and 99 photos
Kew Gardens is great place to visit if you like plants and gardens, otherwise, it's boring. There are a few indoor areas (glass houses) where you can stroll even when the weather isn't that great outdoors. The whole area covers over 300 acres and there are several different areas such as the Japanese, Mediterranean, bamboo, rock, rose, aquatic, azalea gardens.. One of the oldest green houses has tall banana plants and palm trees, hence it's called the Palm House. It is a rather tall building and it is over 160 years old, from the Victorian period.
Kew Gardens was inscribed on the Unesco list of World Heritage Sites in 2003.
Admission is pricey. Even before the closing time of the glass houses they still charge over £10.
Opening times vary. Usually it opens at 9.30am and closes before dusk. Check the website for more details.
