Kew Gardens

If you’re one for horticulture, or just want some time out from the hustle and bustle, get yourself straight to Kew. Only 20 minutes west on the tube from Sloane Square, and then a short walk, the world famous Royal Botanic Gardens are simply beautiful at any time of year. Stroll from the Palm House along Syon Vista to reach our favourite leafy spot by the Thames, then tuck into your own picnic or head over to the delightful Orangery café for a bit of tea and cake. Don’t miss the recently restored Royal Kitchens for an insight into upscale catering, Georgian-style.
