The garden was huge, 121 hectares of landscaped gardens and glasshouses. There was an entrance fee and we also paid to ride the tram to take us to the key attractions. Since the area was too big, we decided to just go to select stops and take our time to enjoy the place.
Needless to say, this place is a photographer’s haven. We took lots of photos!
One attraction we enjoyed was the Tree Top Walkway. We had to climb up the stairs and get into the steel walkway to enjoy the canopy of trees around the garden.
We ate in the restaurant inside the garden. The food was quite good but pricey. They have a good selection of healthy food and beverages.
There were some wildlife inside the garden. We saw ducks, swans, geese, and other beautiful birds. There were squirrels, too.
Another favorite section is the Azalea garden. Beautiful, vibrant colors! I’ve never seen azaleas before so it was a rare visual feast. So pretty!
We also went to a glasshouse with a huge pond in the center filled with beautiful lilies.
There was a small palace in the property.
Another favorite is the glasshouse of desert plants. They are incredibly beautiful.
Finally, it was time to go. We were a bit hungry from all the walking. There were snacks inside the Kew Gardens but they were expensive, and they were all healthy selections. We wanted to indulge. So we just stopped by Starbucks which was near the tube station for some pastries and iced coffee.
This marked the end of our UK trip. We flew back to Manila afternoon of the following day.
