What age is it suitable for? Any, but the children's garden is best for children aged 2+
Where is it? Kew
Spring is one of the best times to visit Kew Gardens - there are over 50,000 plants at the UNESCO world heritage site, with plenty of peaceful spots to sit and picnic with your little one. While the entry fee is quite expensive for adults, children under 4 go free and there are plenty of things for them to engage with.
The Children's Garden is designed for children aged 2-12 to learn more about what plants need to grow, and allows them to explore the natural world through the Sun Garden, Earth Garden, Air Garden, and Water Garden. It's made up of over 100 trees, with hidden treasures and adventures as well as a canopy walk. There's no need to pre-book (even for the Quiet Sessions) and it's a good idea to set aside a good chunk of time to makes sure your little one can explore as much as they want.
Make sure you check the Family page of the site when planning your visit - there are interactive story sessions, family nature activities, and lots of ideas of what to do when you're there including seasonal spotters and trails.
You'll be able to find baby changing stations at the toilets near all the major attractions, and there's a private baby feeding room at the New Family Kitchen and Shop if you'd like some privacy. You can also park your pram at The Hive if you'd like to carry or walk with your baby instead.
