Top Attractions Inside Kew Gardens

As one of the world’s largest botanical gardens, the Kew Gardens are not wanting for attractions. Splendid glasshouses, natural forested areas, flowering border works and botanical archives are some of the many beautiful sections that make the Gardens what it is. All attractions at Kew Gardens London are maintained and studied by the resident botanists with the aim to nurture and preserve.

Davies Alpine House
Davies Alpine House

By booking Kew Gardens tickets you will see Alpines which are some of the most hardy plants on the planet, able to thrive at altitudes where trees cannot. From the Arctic to the Alps and the Andes, these plants have evolved to withstand the harsh circumstances of the Earth's poles and mountaintops. The Davies Alpine House was created without the use of energy-intensive air conditioning or wind pumps to reproduce the dry, chilly, windy conditions that alpines require to flourish. All plants at the Alpine House are nurtured in the nursery, before released into the naturalistic setting of the imposing glasshouse. The impressive glass structure stands out amidst the lush flowering gardens of the Kew Garden. In fact, the Davies Alpine House has also received the RIBA Award for its impressive combination of traditional botanical practices and cutting edge technology.

Natural Area

On the edge where the Kew Gardens open into the river Thames, a rugged, forested space awaits the wanderers of London. The difference is immediately apparent as you approach the Woodland Walk, an elevated track that leads you through the Natural Area without disrupting the wildlife. Tall grasses, wildflowers, and whispering trees surround the shady route, which is home to butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies. The Natural Area offers the perfect space for a leisurely hike through the woods. The trail is riddled with several ‘Bug Hotels’, or feeding spaces where ladybugs, centipedes and beetles convene. There’s a large, Wonderland-like picnic table as well, where one can sit down for an outdoorsy lunch.
