Kew Gardens has teamed up with Transport for London (TfL) to offer discounted tickets until the end of June.

If you travel to the UNESCO World Heritage Site by public transport, you will get 30% off the entrance charge which means that standard adult entry is available at £15.05 if booked online, a saving of £7.20.

The offer is valid seven days a week, from 3 March to 30 June, excluding the Easter weekend, and can be claimed in person at the entrance to Kew Gardens, or online using the code ‘KEWTFL30’ at checkout. All visitors need to do is show proof of travel via the TfL Oyster and contactless app.

London Underground and Kew’s iconic Temperate House are also marking their joint 160th anniversary with a commemorative artwork featuring the majestic Grade I-listed structure, which will be unveiled on the TfL network later this year. The Temperate House is the world’s largest surviving Victorian glasshouse, and is home to 1,500 species of rare and threated plants from around the world.

Visitors can also purchase limited edition TfL and Kew Gardens merchandise, available exclusively at the Kew shop and online ( The new range includes mugs, magnets, tea towels, cushions, tote bags, postcards and bookmarks. Fans of the vintage railway posters can also take home a new range of Kew Gardens posters from the London Transport Museum collection dating back to the 1920s.

A programme of activities throughout 2023 will celebrate London Underground's role connecting Londoners with work and leisure opportunities for the past 160 years. A self-guided treasure hunt across all of the original Metropolitan Railway stations took place in January.

Seb Dance, Deputy Mayor for Transport said, “TfL and Kew Gardens are both key parts of London’s cultural identity. It’s great to be able to celebrate this joint anniversary of 160 years of the Tube and the Temperate House at Kew. As spring approaches, I encourage Londoners to take advantage of these discounted tickets and plan a day out to Kew Gardens on London’s public transport network.”

Julie Dixon, TfL’s Customer Director, said, “Kew Gardens is a popular year-round destination for Londoners and visitors, and we’re really pleased to have teamed up with them for greater savings for our customers as spring colour begins to blossom.

“The fact that the London Underground and the Temperate House at Kew Gardens are both celebrating their 160th anniversary this year makes the partnership even more special. We hope our customers will enjoy exploring Kew Gardens using our transport network, which enables people to enjoy London’s best attractions for less as we head into spring and summer.”

TfL has also teamed up with a number of other attractions in London, including Historic Royal Palaces, to offer customers an exclusive offer for 2023. Customers can also enjoy 30 per cent off at SEA LIFE London Aquarium, The London Dungeon and three other Merlin Entertainments attractions.

Kew Gardens station can be accessed via TfL’s Tube, Rail and bus services. The station, which is a short walk to Kew’s Victoria Gate entrance, is on the District line and London Overground route towards Richmond. Buses that serve Kew Gardens are route 65 (access to Lion Gate, Elizabeth Gate and Victoria Gate) and 110 (stops near Kew Gardens station).
