"Great family day out…"
We took our toddler here thinking there may not be too much for him to do but he had a great time. There was a story telling tent outside the big hot house, kind if like a circus tent and the kids were fascinated by the stories being told. The hot houses he loved as they are like a tropical world and below is an aquarium with loads of different fish to see. There is also a large indoor soft play area and outdoor adventure playground suitable for big and small kids. Aside from those there is loads if outdoor space and picnic areas, an areil walkway, pagoda, too much to mention. It is expensive to get in but it easily takes all day to get round so it's real value for money. There is also free parking outside, if you are lucky enough to get a space. Also for mums a good shop and plant centre. Well worth a visit.Read moreLess
"An Oasis of Calm in The City…"
Kew Gardens is an ideal place to get away from it all within London. Perfect for solitary strolls, family time or a romantic rendezvous.Read moreLess
"We love love love Kew Gardens. When I was pregnant…"
We love love love Kew Gardens. When I was pregnant I used to walk a lot there, hence I was not overdue ))
After she was born it is a lovely place to get together with friends, have a picknick and celebrate. Once the kids are older the interactive play garden and outside play areas are just a treat.
We love the Easter egg hunt as well. I always recommend this place a must visit place with kids and families!
There are baby change facilities, and free water fountains to keep topping up your bottles! The cafes offer plenty of choice if you did not have time to pack your lunch. Do not forget to bring cash!!!Read moreLess

Kew gardens is great, once inside it doesn't feel as if you are only a few miles from central. Easy to get to on public transport.

"Our first visit to Kew with our 2 dds aged…"
Our first visit to Kew with our 2 dds aged 7 and 5 was such a hit that we promptly bought season tickets! There is so much space taht even when busy it is like having your own private gardens. The indoor play area is a little young for my two but did provide adequate entertainment during the rain. There is usually a child friendly activity going on - although I cannot recommend taking freshly planted bulbs home on the tube and train!
Food is good quality but at a price. Picnics are definately the way forward even when chilly. The glass houses have to be seen to be believed and the staff are not just helpful but friendly, knowledgeable and great with kids. Definately worth a visit and under 17s are free.Read moreLess

"The facilities in Kew have been developed in the last…"
The facilities in Kew have been developed in the last few years and there is now a delightful range of activities for children, as well as adults. These include the ever popular (and sometimes a wee bit crowded) Climbers & Creepers educational play centre, the mock over-sized badgers set (a telly tubbies style mound, which you can scramble around in)and the hilltop walk. Best of all, it is THE perfect place for a new mum to sit down and breast feed and just relax, taking in the stunning vistas.Read moreLess
"I have visited Kew Gardens with my children since they…"
I have visited Kew Gardens with my children since they were babies and when not raining heavily have found it a wonderful place. Children love all the exciting caves created by the shrubs, plants and trees and it is great to let them run around roll down hills etc without having to worry about dogs etc. There is quite often a trail, which can be collected from the gate, for children of all ages, which is also educational but fun. Climbers and Creepers is a children's indoor play area which again is educational but lots of fun. There is also a big badger set and the tree walkway. The cafe by Climbers and Creepers is also pretty child friendly, although in high summer it is sometimes hard to get a table. It is also a wonderful place to have a picnic. Only the adults have to pay as children can enter for free.Read moreLess
