Who doesn’t love a gentle stroll through beautiful foliage? The Kew Gardens is the perfect place to spend your free day while in London. The Kew Gardens consists of around 300 acres of beautifully maintained gardens, and a plethora of houses and green houses to explore. Spending the day walking through beautiful gardens, would be my idle way to spend a free day while in London.
The Kew Gardens is located 10 miles west of London near the Thames River. Visitors are able to gain access to the Gardens by arriving by the London Underground (This form of transportation is actually encouraged due to minimal available parking). When arriving by the London Underground, visitors will want to get off at the Kew Gardens Station, and enter the park using the Victoria Gate entrance.
Tickets may be purchased either online, or at the gate. Ticket prices are around 1 pound cheaper when purchased online, this will also help to fast track your entrance into the park. Ticket prices range from £2.50 for children, £14 for disabled visitors and students with school ID, to £15 for adults.
