The price of our tickets (to non-gardeners) seemed a bit high when we bought them, but they were definitely good value. We spent about 5 hours wandering round, and if we hadn’t been shattered by then would have stayed even longer! The food available was good too, and the toilets were clean. All in all, we had a great experience. Lots of space, not crowded. Also got to see inside Kew Palace, which was interesting.

If you enjoy walking in nature and admire many different plants, you will enjoy spending time in Kew Gardens. I praise all employees, who look after all these beautiful plants and trees indoor and outdoor. I hope I will be back in summer. The queue for ice cream was very long and moving very slowly. The choice was small. For the price paid, we were given very tiny scoops (£12 for 6 mini scoops). We chose dish instead of cone for practicality, especially with children. However, both dish and spoon were made of plastic. So not very sustainable material, which does not reflect ethos of Kew's.

Staff really helpful, train ride around gardens to show which parts you want to stop of at is a really good idea but think the fee is quite high for it considering the entrance fee has already been paid. Disappointed that there were not as many flowers in bloom as expected. Definitely need more visits to see everything. Prices in restaurants are ridiculously high e.g. over £6 for a sausage roll (that was not that nice), they would earn more if more reasonable
