Since I moved to London I have heard a lot about Kew Gardens. Given my obsession with plants you would have thought that I had visited Kew years ago, but I only just made it there in the past few weeks. Before going, I thought yeah it will probably be a beautiful place with lots of lovely botanicals. And yes it was that, but it was also so much more. My visit to Kew was epic. The houses in particular where they grow palms, waterlilies and cacti were unbelievable. It was so incredible in fact that I now rate Kew Gardens as a must see place to those living in England but also anyone visiting as well. It only takes a few hours of the day and is so worth it. I wanted to share a couple of my photos from my visit and a little video I made of my favorite parts of the day. There is so much more to see (my pics just show the houses). For all of my British friends following the blog, if you have not yet been you need to go … asap. Get all the details about Kew here and hope you enjoy.

The Palm House

The Palm House was jaw dropping. It literally transports you to another tropical world.

Even the sounds of the steam & water spraying of the plants felt exotic.

The Palm House is two floors as this stunning design is part of the staircase going up.

It might sounds weird but when I saw these bits of rust on the top floor it made the whole house seem even more beautiful. It added an aged, charming feel to the whole experience.

It was so hot and steamy up on the 1st floor, but worth every second.

The Waterlily House

After the beauty of the Palm House, I really wasn’t prepared to visit something even more mind blowing … The Waterlily House.

This room was so dreamy. It was a single green house filled with a pond and giant waterlily pads.

Such beauty.

The Princess of Wales Conservatory

Kew Garden Cacti
This conservatory was enormous and housed everything from waterlilies, cacti gardens and carnivore plants (the kind that eat things). The cactus garden was of course my favorite part.

I spotted these beautiful palms on top of the terrazzo wall which was a perfect design combo in my opinion.
