I’d been wanting to visit Kew Gardens for aaaaaages!
So a good few Saturdays back…WE DID!
The weather forecast for the day- rain.
So, we threw our hair up, grabbed our rain macs and made for the train station!
An hour and a half, 3 games of Top Trumps and one giant game of Eye Spy later…we arrived!
Entry is usually £16 each, £4 for children over the age of 4 and free for children under.
HOWEVER as we are “Friends of Kew” we are able to visit an unlimited number of times in the year which cost around £100.
First stop- The Great Pagoda
Filled with all sorts of pretty, Temperate House was like a big secret garden.
Miya was running around smelling and pointing at everything. She loved it!
The photo opportunities were never ending!
The Waterlily House
The Waterlily House was another of our favourites! It was so fascinating and the giant waterlilies were just amazing!
Walking from attraction to attraction through acres and acres of beautiful garden
We stopped at The Orangery for a break from the rain and some refreshments…
Back to it…
Kew Palace & Kitchens
The palace and gardens were small but charming
Kew for Kids
Although Miya loved exploring the gardens with us, there was also plenty to keep her occupied.
The Dragon Trail
The Log Trail
& plenty more!
Even though it felt like we covered everything we still have plenty on the ‘to do’ list for next time!
In fact speaking of next time- we will be returning for Christmas at Kew and we can’t wait!
20,000 steps later we headed for home and had a cosy evening after a long but lovely day in the rain!
See you at Christmas Kew!
