Kew Gardens and Kew Palace 

The world’s most famous gardens offer visitors the chance to delve into a rainforest, see the galleries dedicated to botanical art and take a stroll along the spectacular walkway set within the tree canopies above the gardens underneath. The recently re-opened Temperate House, a Grade I listed masterpiece of 19th-century design and the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world, is also a sight to behold.

In the Princess of Wales Conservatory, guests can travel through ten climatic zones and discover orchids from Central America, Madagascan baobab tress and carnivorous plants from Asia, and marvel at the giant lily pads in the Waterlily House across the way.

Kew Gardens is the home of Kew Palace. Set within the grounds, this palace is on a smaller scale to most of the other Royal palaces, and was the country home of King George III. Many of the rooms have been restored to the décor from 200 years ago to offer a unique insight into the family life members of the Royal family would have experienced.

There’s so much to see and do at Kew Gardens and Kew Palace, it really is worth setting aside a sunny day to take a trip to Richmond upon Thames.

City Cruises - Afternoon Tea

Looking for a cultured way to pass an afternoon? Want to see London from a different perspective? Then, an Afternoon Tea cruise is just the ticket! Gather a group of like-minded friends or your closest family members and set out on the River Thames for 90 minutes of sandwiches, scones and sights. If you’re feeling extra decadent, why not treat yourself to a glass of bubbly? It’s the perfect way to relax after a long day of shopping and exploring the city.

Our ticket includes a selection of sandwiches, traditional cakes, pastries, scones with clotted cream and jam, as much tea and coffee as you like, as well as a live commentary.

After tea, you can stroll upstairs to fully appreciate the view of London’s iconic skyline. A 360 degree view of the City from the middle of the Thames – it’s a one-of-a-kind experience to share with your loved ones.
