Kew Explorer - Tours With Commentary

The Kew Explorer offers a great way to gain an introduction to the Gardens. Whether it is for a corporate event or a wedding, the Kew Explorer provides you with a wonderful overview of our outstanding 300 acres of gardens.

We have two Kew Explorer vehicles which can comfortably hold up to 72 guests each and can be booked privately from 5.30pm on weekdays and weekends. A standard Explorer tour takes approximately 35 minutes with live commentary by one of our drivers, covering Kew history, festivals, research and plant conservation information. We can, however, tailor the commentary specifically to your event. Your guests will be escorted to and from the vehicle at a pre-arranged location within the Gardens. One 35 minute taster tour around the Gardens with commentary costs 300 plus VAT. Individually tailored tours and quotations are available upon request.

If you would like to book a Kew Explorer tour for your event, please contact the Explorer Team on
