Celebrate the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness by visiting Kew Gardens this autumn. Our Kew Garden tickets give £1 pound off each adult entry to this family friendly attraction and since children under 16 are admitted free of charge, it has to be one of the best value venues for half term.
Organised activities for children and guided tours are free with Kew Gardens tickets and visitors are welcome to bring their own picnic, so put on your “sensible shoes” and explore at your leisure. Kew Garden tickets can also make a great gift for any keen gardeners, whatever the season, and our gift vouchers are valid for 3 months.
Autumn means pumpkin harvest time and a 4 metre pyramid using 75 different varieties is on display in the Waterlily House. There is also a pumpkin carving demonstration to inspire you and ready carved or whole pumpkins for sale.
Autumn is also the peak mushroom season and at Kew gardens they form part of the 2013 IncrEdibles Festival (not the poisonous varieties!) Children can learn about the secret life of fungi or make plasticine models to plant in a giant fairy ring.
They may also enjoy learning about how flesh eating plants devour their prey or venture into the tunnels of the giant Badger’s Sett. The Kids Kew guidebook for 7-11 year olds is full of fun facts, activities, maps and stickers and makes a great souvenir to take home.
Alternatively, experience the high life up in the 18 metre high Xstrata Treetop Walkway and see the crowns of the trees, at this time of year, a blaze of red, orange and yellow, or enjoy the steamy warmth of the Palm House.
With 300 acres there is a lot of ground to cover but there is a hop on/off Kew Explorer bus following a circular route around the gardens and four cafes and restaurants serving hot and cold food and children’s lunchboxes. One of them, the White Peaks cafe, has an indoor and outdoor play area and a shop full of garden related goodies.
