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.
