Visit Kew Gardens - the most natural high in London this autumn
Visit Kew Gardens and go 18 metres up onto our spectacular Xstrata Treetop Walkway for head-turning views of autumn. Golden browns, burnt oranges and deep reds - with the leaves starting to turn to a glorious array of colours, there is only one place in London to really experience the delights of autumn-time.
Reach breath-taking heights on the Xstrata Treetop Walkway
Climb high into the tree canopy for a spectacular experience testing your head for heights. Feel as tall as the trees and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the Gardens as they burst with autumn colour.
As the trees shed their summer growth, one of Kew’s most popular attractions – the 18 metre high Xstrata Treetop Walkway – opens up stunning views across the Gardens and the city’s skyline.
Seek out Kew's quirky Bonsai House
See the best bonsai trees from our collection this autumn.
Before visiting their full-sized neighbours, why not wander over to the wonderfully quirky Bonsai House and take in these miniature trees in the full throes of autumn colour? Built in 1887, Kew’s Bonsai House was originally used for displaying Alpine plants, and over the years it has been enlarged and reconstructed. Bonsai are ornamental trees or shrubs that are grown in pots and pruned to present a miniature version of a mature tree.
