Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew), London: 52 reviews and 99 photos
The 300 acres of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew ("Kew Gardens") is more than just a repository of botanical life - it is also of historical significance and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For most people, though, it is just a simply wonderful outdoor space to visit. There is easily enough to do/see here over several hours. The Gardens has two iconic glasshouses built in the mid 1800s - the Palm House and the Temperate House - as well as a 10-storey Chinese pagoda constructed in 1762. It has many themed sections, including the largest bamboo collection in Europe. The garden and gift shop is also excellent. Admission cost GBP12.25 for adults and free for children under 17 years (2007 prices).
