Family fun at Kew, the Gardens of epic adventure...
As Kew is a botanic garden with many precious plants and trees, we kindly ask that children don’t scoot on scooters or play ball games while in the Gardens. And as tempting as it is for all of us, please no climbing trees!
From the tallest tree to the deadliest seed, from the sneakiest flower to the smelliest plant, there is a world of wonder to explore at London's Kew Gardens. Welcome to Kids’ Kew!
