Why you should visit the Kew Gardens


The Kew gardens represent a side to London that many don’t get to see. Many visitors opt to only visit the grand and fabulous parks, and that only makes sense. Considering their vicinity to central London, they provide the balance to London’s urban districts – and because there’s so much to see and do in the city, many don’t find time to visit the Kew Gardens.

Nevertheless, during your stay in the capital, we highly recommend you take the time and visit the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, Richmond. Should you decide to stay and at the Montcalm club, and enjoy any of the Montcalm club packages , you’ll be about a half hour drive away from the venue.

It’s an official UNESCO world heritage site – and for good reason. The magnificent gardens feature magnificent glasshouses, galleries – and represent an important part of the history of the capital.

After all, King Henry VII moved his court to Richmond Palace, and ever since then – the Kew village has flourished. In fact, some say that it’s the most impressive London Garden. Naturally, if there’s one garden you’re going to visit during your stay in the city, make it the Kew Gardens. Not only will you be able to discover a beautiful nature spot, you will also be able to explore the quieter side of the city.

Richmond as an area is known for its calm atmosphere and prodigious Park. Unlike the parks of Regents and Hyde Park, which you’ll be familiar with if you stay in central, the Richmond Park is a little different.

In short, Richmond is an area that boats parks and gardens that represent nature at its finest.
