What people are saying about Kew Gardens
Rated 5 out of 5 by Willywoo27 from A beautiful way to spend Valentine's Day I was very excited to attend the exhibition as Orchids are my favourite flowers. The display was gorgeous the orchids were stunning I especially liked the displays that were carnival ladies. It was so very colourful, the samba music added to the authenticity of the gardens. I took lots of photos to look back on. We also enjoyed the cactus display different types I had never seen before. We enjoyed the merchandise in the shop my husband bought me a beautiful scarf, all in all we had a fantastic time at Kew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ErnieP from Brilliant day at Kew We went for the orchids, which were excellent. This lead us to the Shirley Haywood gallery where we thoroughly enjoyed the Margaret Mee et al paintings, and followed up with the Marianne North gallery which was a fascinating trip around the world. Also enjoyed the woodland gardens, early spring bulbs and magnolias on a lovely sunny, crisp day. So good we are considering membership.
