Kew is not only one of the most beautiful gardens on earth, but it also boasts the world’s largest collection of living plants. Kew gardens have seen influences from British kings, queens, prices, princesses, dukes, lords and more since King Edward I built a manor house near its location in 1299. It was first adopted as a national botanical garden in 1840, though it was “formally started” in 1759.

Today, the 300 acres are home to 30,000 different plants – as well as several stunningly beautiful palaces, glass structures, and ornamental buildings.
