"Kew Gardens" Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew) Tip by Dabs

  Kew Gardens
by Dabs

If you get a nice sunny day, Kew Gardens is an excellent place to spend a morning. I got there around 10 so it was too early to use take the 40 minute Kew Explorer tram which would have only been an additional L1 with the London Pass.

So I started left from the Victoria Gate entrance, there really wasn't much to see in that direction besides a conservatory and lots of trees. Had I headed right instead of left, that is where most of the flowering gardens are along with the palm house, orangery, etc.

I posted a bunch of pics and some more tips over on my Kew Gardens page so go check it out if you are a floral and fauna fan.

Address: Kew, TW9
Directions: Kew Gardens tube

Short walk from the tube, it's in zone 3 so I had to buy an extension on my zone 1-2 travelcard for L1.10 each way.
