    Kew Gardens (London, United Kingdom)

    The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (also known as Kew Gardens) consist of 300 acres of gardens and greenhouses along the east bank of the Thames in southwest London. Founded by Princess Augusta (mother of George III) in 1759, the gardens were gifted to the nation by the Royal Family in 1841. Kew Gardens are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and they function as a major scientific institution for the study and classification of plants as well as a major tourist attraction. Features include paths to and by the river, bedding areas with seasonal plantings, the Rhododendrum Dell, 18th-century garden follies designed by Sir William Chambers, the Kew Garden Gallery, and the Palm House for tropical plants. The gardens are accessible by riverboat (about 90 minutes from Westminster Pier) or by Tube (District Line toward Richmond). Check the official Web site for admission fees and public hours.
