Kew Gardens - worth taking the kids too?

Found 30th Apr 2009
Anyone been? Would the kids enjoy it or would it be boring?

Thanks!

It looks a bit pricey. I've never been...

My kids always love it, they can run up and down and race about and scoff food in the cafe and restaurant and flop down on the grass at the end.

If you have energetic little monsters like me, it'll be fun

My kids love the humid rooms and suchlike, take some colouring stuff with you too and they can draw some of the plants x x

My 2 don't stop moving LOL! I thought it would be like you need to be sensible and walk nicely and stuff, sounds more appealing if the kids won't be out of place running around

I've never found it restrictive with the kiddies like that though there are obviously some places that are more to be taken carefully than others, but really on a sunny day it's gorgeous and will definitely wear the little ones out lol

Can you recommend any other good places to take them, too? Sound like you have a similar set-up to me LOL!

Yeah, North East London but don't mind a journey if it's worth it - just always looking for new ideas

Not sure of your kiddies ages and stages...

Mine love the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green as Mummy rushes around going" Ohhh, Look, I played with this when I was little!!" lol and they enjoy my enthusiasm.

the science museum in the city is free and has that play area in the basement where you can sit and eat sarnies too.

My girls love the Victoria and Albert Museum as they try on all the costumes of clothing through the ages. I have a photos of my daughter in a corset a little girl would have worn like 200 yrs ago.

You must do Tussauds/planetarium/ the london eye/ london zoo/ the trocadero/ river cruises/ walk down embankment....but I'm sure you know all those and the issues with crowds etc.

Eat at The Hard Rock and the Rainforest Cafe in the city.

My kids are a bit older now and they love Thorpe Park and Chessington...

Some ideas off the top of my head anyways x x x

oh my kids are spoilt, they think its all so yesterday lol

Those links are great honey, thank you x x

Kids will love it if they are energetic - family of 4 for £15 is a bargain imo. Just been twice, both times on sunny days. Lovely memories
