One of the world's leading botanic gardens.
London Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens are situated on the south bank of the River Thames near Richmond, about 10km south-west of London.
Kew Gardens can be reached easily by car but we recommend public transport for environmental reasons, and because it is usually most convenient. The "Tube" (London Underground) is the best way to get to Kew Gardens from the centre or West End of London. Buses serve those living north or south of Kew (Ealing down to Kingston) and the neighbouring suburbs. From north London, Silverlink trains run directly to Kew Gardens station.
The 'Kew Explorer' people mover enables all our visitors to get an excellent overall view of the 120 hectares (300 acres) of Kew. The current route, lasting approximately 35-40 minutes incorporates 8 stops close to buildings and areas of interest within the Kew Gardens, and 'Explorer' ticket holders are able to get on and off at any of the stops throughout the day.
Take a closer look at the wonders of Kew Gardens by joining a guided walking tour. Our enthusiastic guides are all volunteers with a wide knowledge and love of the Kew Gardens. Each guide presents his or her own tour, taking in the highlights of the season, exploring the exotic plants in the glasshouses and explaining the history and work of Kew Gardens. During the festivals Kew Volunteer Guides offer in-depth tours, which enhance and explain the festival themes.
Go Wild, Kew’s summer festival for 2003, turns the spotlight on the splendour of Britain’s wild species. Through special features, exhibitions and art installations, Go Wild shows the conservation message at the heart of Kew’s work.
The Foundation and Friends of Kew is a registered charity established in 1990 to support the work of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and to raise awareness of the organisation's scientific and conservation work worldwide.
There are now over 50,000 Friends of Kew. Their membership helps us to maintain the world's premier botanic Kew Gardens and at Wakehurst Place, our sister garden in West Sussex. Many of our conservation and research projects would not have been successful without the Friends' help.
The Foundation supports the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew by raising funds from a whole range of sources including charitable trusts, major donors and the corporate sector. Last year, the Foundation and Friends together raised over £3.5 million for our work. There are many ways in which you can become more closely involved with Kew, learn more about our work, and support us in our mission.
