Kew Gardens is London’s own little slice of paradise, spread across 300 acres and boasting millions of rare and exotic plant specimens. It was founded in 1840 and is recognised as one of the largest botanical collections anywhere in the world. The landscape across the entire site is simply breath taking and offers Londoners and tourists the opportunity to escape the hustle of the city in favour of a tranquil and peaceful garden.
Some of the highlights include the treetop walkway that lets you stroll along the top of the forest, 60 feet off the ground, offering stunning views. The palm house is one of last remaining Victorian iron and glass structures and is home to palms and tropical plants from Asia, the Americas, Africa, the Pacific Islands and Australasia.
