London: Kew Gardens


Inside the Palm House

Inside the Palm House

The UNESCO World Heritage designated Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew is located along the Thames in southwest London. Pictures of the Victorian-era Palm House, Kew’s iconic structure, certainly draw in many tourists. Seeing the wrought iron and glass enclosed Palm House is worth the visit on its own.

But there’s plenty more to see at Kew beyond this one structure. Indeed, though we toured the Palm House, Kew Palace, the Nash Conservatory, the Pagoda, the Princess of Wales Conservatory, the Temperate House (currently under renovation), Queen Charlotte’s Cottage, the Treetop Walkway, and the Waterlilly House there’s much more at Kew that we didn’t see. I imagine its possible to see all of Kew Gardens in a day but it would be a very busy day.

Built between 1844 and 1848 of wrought iron and glass, the Palm House is Kew Garden's most iconic structure
