Best things to do at Kew Gardens this autumn
Oct 26, 2022
The best spots for colour are the Treetop Walkway and the Arboretum. The Grass Garden is stunning at this time of year or join the daily walking tour of Kew’s trees, a free and fun way to learn more.
A fun candy-coloured magical land of Pip & Pop’s When Flowers Dream in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art.
Kew’s Temperate House is hosting three spectacular art installations, including a slumber of sloths amid the canopy, and two new works by Mexican artist Betsabée Romero, created especially for Kew.
BURN OFF SOME STEAM
Let children run wild at the Children’s Garden (open early on 30 October for quiet sessions) and/or wander through the main Gardens to find the log trail. Adults can challenge themselves to walk the perimeter of the 300 acres of Kew to slam step counts!
MOMENTS OF CALM
Pause at the Lake Crossing for autumnal reflections on the water. Stroll through the Rock Garden’s late-flowering sedums, autumn crocuses and silver vegetation. Visit the tranquil Japanese Landscape or relax at King William’s Temple.
