The gardens are fenomenal, loads to see and do, including for kids. Particularly like the treetop adventure area.

Hi. I haven't seen anything about severe overcrowding at Christmas at Kew, or experienced it. We've been to the event every year since it started, including 2016, and it has always been very quick, easy and efficient to get... More
