Satisfy your wanderlust at Kew this year. 

Bask in the glory of the Californian summer with our Redwood Grove. Get your Spanish holiday fix with our Mediterranean Garden. Adventure around Asia with our Japanese Garden or experience the Himalayas with our incredible Rhododendron Dell. 

Let the powerful fragrances of the Chinese Grove transport you thousands of miles away, or if you're the adventurous type, explore the humid forests of Madagascar in our tropical glasshouse. 

Holidays might look a little different this year, but the scents and sights of Kew Gardens can whisk you away. 

This summer, create the holiday of a lifetime in a day. The world awaits you...
