Attraction Information

Explore over 300 acres at Kew Gardens and uncover tropical rainforest, treetop adventures and woodland creatures. It’s an opportunity for your kids to play outdoor and learn about the importance of plants at the same time.

At Kew Gardens, there are plenty of kid-friendly activities to keep your sprogs entertained while you appreciate the beautiful plants. Looking to burn off some energy? Unleash your under 9s on Climbers and Creepers - an interactive indoor play area, where they can wiggle through tunnels like a field mouse, or slide down a giant pitcher plant. Follow this up with a stroll 18 metres above the ground on the Treetop Walkway - the views are amazing!

Don't miss the new Children's Garden! Based in a natural setting the size of 40 tennis courts, there's hidden treasures and adventures around every corner - from a high canopy walk, to sunken trampolines! With dedicated gardens, including the earth, air, sun and water garden, kids can explore all the things that plants need to grow!
