A side-effect of the lockdown is that Kew Gardens is cheaper to visit at the moment. That’s candidly a reflection of the fact that all the indoor spaces in the gardens are closed, so no chance to warm up inside the Greenhouses.
It’s ideal though if you fancy a winter wander around the ornate gardens over the Christmas break.

Entry is normally around £16.50, recently reduced to £13.50 as some of the buildings were closed, but have been reduced further to £10 while we’re in Tier 3 lockdown.
There are also a range of children and family prices. In addition, if you have a Blue Light card, issued to emergency service workers, or military personal – then entry is free of charge.
Booking details are here.
The gardens are closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but open the rest of the time.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
