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.

Additionally, if you purchase a London Pass on arrival, you’ll be glad to know that you can get free entry to the venue. Usually, the normal ticket price is £9 for adults and £3.50 for children. In terms of what you can expect; it’ll be unlike anything else you’ve experienced in a park setting. Here, you’ll find more species per square metre in its 121 hectares of space. 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. Its landscapes are grand, and what’s interesting to know is that visitors can find actual deer at the place. In short, Richmond is an area that boats parks and gardens that represent nature at its finest.

At the Kew gardens, you’ll find a gift shop should you wish to buy a souvenir. More importantly, you’ll be inspired by your trip there. So much so, that you’ll want to change your garden and bring more nature into your home environment. Whatever the season, we highly recommend you take a trip down to Kew Gardens. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the majestic nature of everything that’s waiting for you.
