Explore one of London’s most beautiful attractions and enjoy a traditional English treat with this visit to Kew Gardens with an afternoon tea for two. You can make your way around this 326-acre UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring diverse plant life from around the world. Enter glasshouses and explore landscapes as you uncover 250 years of history at one of the world’s most famous gardens.
You’ll have access to the Royal Kitchens, Palm House, Rose Garden, The Princess of Wales Conservatory and much more.
Included in your experience is your choice of traditional, vegetarian or gardener’s afternoon tea. Expect fresh savouries, scones with clotted cream and jam, delicate pastries and a choice of teas at Kew Garden’s Botanical restaurant, with exceptional views over the Pond and Palm House. A perfect experience for nature and history lovers everywhere.
On arrival at Kew, you will need to hand in your voucher at the ticket office where you will receive a map with information on what events are arranged for that day so you can plan your visit.

Very happy with experience
Was given this as a present and it was a really good choice.
Kew Gardens is a wonderful open area with a lot of things to see. The greenhouses with exotic plants are a must do.
Including afternoon tea was a great bonus. The food was very good and well presented. As tea was in the Botanical Restaurant it was waiter service which made it more of an occasion.
The gardens are absolutely enormous and there is so much to see and do that you will never manage it in one day. Whether you like just wandering through the trees admiring the woodland or taking in the history at the palace there is most definitely enough to keep you entertained all day. After a long day looking around the afternoon tea was extremely welcome! The view over the lake from The Botanical is amazing and the food and drink was lovely. Best cup of tea ever!
The Botanical Afternoon Tea experience was a lovely Christmas gift which we waited until the warmer weather to use so that we could enjoy the wonderful gardens. The only thing I could suggest to improve on is the availability of more tea to accompany the very pleasant afternoon tea. Excellent service and wonderful views from our table.
Brilliant day, could not fault a thing.
