Take your Cue

London-Mums_Baby-Bunting– Family fun at the Royal Botanical Gardens


Jump the queues this bank holiday weekend by lining up for an early start at Kew Gardens.


Celebrate the Royal Botanic Gardens 250th birthday with a feast of fun, family-friendly festivities. Try seed weaving at Seed Walk. Meandering  through the grounds on the self-guided Plant Spy Thinking Walk. Or get creative at the Climbers and Creepers Centre, making tool kits, collecting bags, nature notebooks and treasure boxes – all absolute must-haves for the most ardent adventurer.


Kew (a World Heritage site) is great for tots of any age – dinky dots enjoy the fresh air … and may doze off leaving their parents to enjoy a couple of hours (minutes?) together. For those keen on displaying their mobility, what better than 300-odd acres to drag a grown-up through? And for the budding aviator, there are all the Heathrow-bound planes to admire.


For those who like their adventure a little more mellow, marvel at giant water lilies or carnivorous plants before munching on a picnic.  Take your cue from the very chic, and head to somewhere fab beforehand to pick up your picnic. The strong could brave the café queues …


What Mini says:

Sounds right on cue.


The Gardens are open from 9.30am to 6.30pm and 7:30 pm on weekends. Tickets cost £13 for adults with tots going free. Information on planning your visit is available online.
