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. The Great Broad Walk Borders – the world’s longest double herbaceous borders and the Gardens’ most recent horticultural feature – opened to provide stunning colour from over 60,000 flowering plants from early spring through to late autumn.
Included in your experience is your choice of traditional, vegetarian or gardener’s afternoon tea for two including fresh sandwiches or savouries, scones with clotted cream and jam, delicate tea pastries and a choice of teas on site 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. You can spend as long as you like in Kew Gardens but don’t forget that you also have access to Kew Palace and are welcome to enjoy a pre-booked afternoon tea in the on-site Botanical restaurant with views over the Pond and Palm House.
You’ll have a choice between a classic, vegetarian or gardener’s afternoon tea, each of which will include a selection of finger sandwiches or savouries, home-made baked scones with Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam, delicate tea pastries and a choice of tea from the comprehensive selection.

A brilliant day despite the rain, wonderful surroundings, amazing Chihuly art works, fab tea at the Botanical. Five stars all round.
Afternoon Tea was delicious, excellent service, definitely recommend.
Good day out beautiful weather and Kew is stunning.
Afternoon tea in Botanical Restaurant was very good , plenty of food for two people nice surroundings polite staff.
A perfect day helped by glorious weather and a faultless train service. Kew Gardens has recently opened the restored Victorian Temperate Conservatory which was a real bonus. The Botanical restaurant service was superb and we were seated overlooking the lake.
