A day trip to Kew is the ultimate way to reconnect with the natural world. Travel to all the corners of the planet, from the jungle to the Mediterranean, and the far-flung pockets of rural Japan.
Whatever time of year, you can whisk yourself away to a world filled with fragrance, colour and wonder. With over 50,000 living plants, there's so much to see - from the larger-than-life arboretum to the exotic fancies of the tropical glasshouse.
Take a walk through the giant bamboo trees, feed your fascination with a visit to the carnivorous plants, feel like a fairy in the woodland garden, or listen to the gentle sounds of falling water in the rock garden. All that fresh air is bound to make you peckish, so make sure to stop by one of Kew's five cafes and restaurants for a slice of pizza or a dainty but delicious afternoon tea.
