The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew is one of the world’s most famous gardens covering 130 hectares of landscapes and gardens.

The Temperate House is the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world containing 10,000 plants.   It has recently reopened after a 5-year restoration programme.   It is a Grade 1 Listed building and is twice the size of the Palm House.

There is a hop-on-hop off land train which will take you around the gardens.  You can purchase a ticket costing £4 on arrival.

The castle was built in 1385 to defend surrounding countryside.  It is one of the finest examples of medieval architecture.  

The tearoom, shop and toilets are situated in the car park.

After our visit the coach will leave Bodiam for Worthing.
