There’s so much to see at Kew that it’s a good idea to check their website before visiting as it has information on ‘What’s Looking Good Right Now’.

Here are a few highlights….

In Spring, the woods surrounding Queen Charlotte’s Cottage are covered in a carpet of blue. Did you know that over half the world’s population of bluebells grow in the UK?

Wander around the Arboretum and discover over 2,000 species of trees, some that cannot be found anywhere else in Britain.

Explore the world through ten different climate zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.

Stretching over 320 meters, the Great Broad Walk Borders look spectacular from Spring until the Autumn.

Other features to look out for are the Temperate House, Great Pagoda, Rock Garden, Grass Garden, Bamboo Garden, Rose Garden, Davies Alpine House and the Woodland Garden.

And if you’re not frightened of heights, climb up to the Treetop Walkway and discover the complex ecosystem which exists on the upper branches of trees

Also visit Kew’s wild botanic garden at Wakehurst Gardens in West Sussex.
