As part of the “Travel the World with Kew” summer event which is running at Kew Gardens from 14 May – 25 September 2011, families can experience the heat of the tropical rainforest, from Brazilian tropical palms to ancient cycads, in the Palm House and the tranquillity of the Alps in the Davies Alpine House, where they will discover the soothing waterfalls and delicate flowers found in the mountain ranges of the world. They can also view the remarkable and iconic Chinese-style Pagoda , unwind at the tranquil Japanese Landscape boasting beautiful blossom and structured planting or explore the dramatic landscape of the desert in the Princess of Wales Conservatory, featuring cacti from South America and aloes from Africa.

Prices for the “Kew Family Package,” which is available from 28 May – 5 June 2011, start from £299 for a family of four (terms & conditions apply). The price includes a two-night stay in an Executive Family Room on a bed and breakfast basis, free in-room movies throughout the visit to keep the whole family entertained, a two-course dinner in the hotel’s stylish Napa restaurant on one of the evenings and entry to Kew Gardens.
