50 minutes from London center, Kew Gardens are the royal botanic gardens existing from the XVIIIth century, located in the borough of Richmond. A green bubble to escape the city gathering more than 30 000 plants, flowers and trees. Plan to spend at least 3 hours in the 326-acre park to enjoy all it has to offer. From a palm tree house to a Japanese gateway, passing by a treetop walkway and Kew Palace – which housed George III and his family – this Unesco heritage is a little gem at the doors of the city. Quite impossible to summarize, discover in pictures some chosen places and have a look at the website, there is always a festival or an event at Kew Gardens.
