If you’re staying in London and you’re short on time you should definitely consider taking the London Pass. If you plan your trip properly and you have that explorer’s zeal in you, you can extract much more value from it than what you pay for in the pass! Even though it doesn’t include some popular attractions like London Eye, Madam Tussaud’s and Sea Life, this pass will definitely help you in simplifying how you should plan your trip in and around London. PS - The availability of the Uber Boat and Hop on Hop off Bus through the pass is a very underrated feature and if used properly can impart great saving value to your trip!

Easy travel via tube nice village feel around KEW station area. Staff more than helpful asked mum if she would prefer wheelchair to her Walker. Told us where all seating areas were to rest. Amazing plants as expected but giant lily pads a must. Managed 4 hours lots more to see though.

visited on the Sunday hottest time of the year so far, the Palm House was amazing and well worth the visit but it was hot so you need plenty of water. we did walk up to the top and around the Palm house, and it was just fantastic seeing the Palms.

First visit to Kew Gardens, well worth the entry fee. Good experience. As with all the seasons, each season gives us a different perspective of God's wonderful creation.

Great day out. It will take an entire day to be able to visit it all but is worth it. Enjoy
