KEW'S ROYAL BOTANICAL GARDENS
LONDON PASS TOURS - KEW'S ROYAL BOTANICAL GARDENS
Kew Gardens were created at the beginning of the 18th century by Queen Caroline (1683-1737). She was very interested in gardening and employed Charles Bridgeman and William Kent to develop the grounds. Since then the gardens were maintained all over the centuries by different monarchs and were called Royal Botanic Gardens.
On 3 July 2003, Kew gardens have been world wide recognized and were added on the List of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. These gardens are really unique among London Pass attractions. Collectors, scientists, architects and gardeners have taken care of this place and turned it into a botanical jewel. 300 acres on the bend of the Thames contains some of the finest specimens of plants and trees all over the world. Flora from the early 18th century to new rare vegetable species, each specimen is a part of the development of these precious gardens.
