Kew Garden Pictures
Kew Gardens, also known as the Royal Botanic Gardens, is a 300-acre botanical garden in Kew, southwest London. The gardens were founded in 1759 and are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kew Gardens houses the world’s largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections, with over 50,000 living plants and over 8.5 million preserved plant and fungal specimens. You can explore a variety of habitats, including an arboretum, a rock garden, and several glasshouses.
The gardens also have several historic buildings, such as the Palm House, Temperate House, and Great Pagoda. Kew Gardens plays an essential role in plant conservation and research, working to protect endangered species and promote sustainable agriculture. We’ve visited most of the tourist attractions in London and rate Kew as one of the best, in our opinion. If you’re interested in green spaces, plants or history, it’s worth a visit. You might even get some cracking Kew Garden pictures of your own!
