As one of London’s premier outdoor activities, Kew Gardens really is an oasis tucked away in the city. The site is home to over 50,000 plants that are spread over a variety of different houses and gardens that help to bring their story to life. The remarkable work at Kew Gardens has been rewarded as it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As well as the amazing gardens and houses, there are also various exhibitions that take place throughout the year. A current exhibition by the artist Chihuly has introduced an amazing installation of glass flowers that have to be seen to be believed. Kew Gardens has so much to see and do, it is a fantastic day out for all the family.
