Easter Sunday at Kew Gardens

We decided to spend Easter Sunday at Kew Gardens and it didn't disappoint. 

If you're an outdoorsy type that loves flowers, trees and walking a lot, you have to visit Kew. If you're not, you might as well close this post now - be warned, there is a tremendous amount of pictures of flowers, trees and foliage. 

The two bits of advice I would give would be to wear good walking shoes and to pack a picnic. We went for the overpriced salad and sandwiches at The Orangery which was something I wouldn't recommend. If you do want to eat there, The Botanical behind Palm House does a great cream tea. 

The £16.50 we paid pp to get in was definitely worth the trip and is a great way to spend a day out with family and friends. If you're not so fond of all the walking, there's also a Kew Explorer train that gives a tour around the gardens every half a hour.

If you want to find out more about Kew, keep reading for my highlights of our 6 hours there... I have tried to whittle down the 100s of photo to a few of my favourites. 

Palm House 

The victorian tropical green house is home to the oldest potted plant.

Cherry Walk 

Japanese Gardens

Kew Palace/Queen's Garden

The summer home of King George III is one of the oldest buildings at Kew and The Queen's Garden out the back have a great selection of medicinal herbs. 

Princess of Wales Conservatory 

Was opened in 1987 by Princess Diana and has 10 different climatic zones - including tropical plants, pineapple trees and cacti. 


After all that walking I'm now in need of some tea, Easter eggs and a short nap. Zzzz.
