Kew Royal Botanical Gardens
Kew Botanical Gardens
Kew Gardens were created in 1772 and encompass 300 acres. The gardens are botanical (they have an extensive seed bank), rather than visual, in theme. Plant houses include the Palm House, the Temperate House, The Princess of Wales Tropical Conservatory and the Alpine House. Kew Palace with the Queen's Garden at the rear, is located in the grounds. It is a small country house built during King George III's reign.

There is an Organgery and a Pagoda in the grounds along with the Queen's Cottage, a picnic house for Queen Charlotte. Extensive paths wind among many varieties of trees. For opening times, location, map of the Gardens, special events and full details see their Web site.
