Royal Botanic Gardens reviews
Beautiful example of green English garden and historical enormous hot house. Walking the gardens is beautiful. Some rare and ancient plants in the hot house if you can spot them. more »
Had a wonderful day walking the gardens. Amazing place to visit and soak up the tranquillity. Too much to digest in one day so will have to go back! more »
Wonderful place. Great for families too. If you like nature you’ve got to visit Kew Gardens. You can just stroll around and check the many different trees from around the world. Glasshouses are great too of course. You can literally spend the whole day there, obviously much better when the weather is decent...
A truly magnificent collection of native and international species of plants, endangered as well as common. All beautifully housed and presented. A joy to behold. Being from Southern Africa, it was so wonderful to see familiar species on display. Anyone who appreciates and values our precious heritage should visit without fail. So very worthwhile.
