Kew Gardens

In 1759 Princess Augusta (mother of King George 111) founded a botanic garden amidst the pleasure gardens at Kew. These fabulous gardens have dozens of historic buildings and monuments and millions of specimens. Apart from being a garden of rare beauty, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a centre for scientific research and has the world¼s most comprehensive knowledge of plants. It also plays an important role in conservation with more than 38,000 species safeguarded here. Open all year, details.
