Kew Gardens

The world-famous Kew Gardens is a wonderful day out for all ages, whether you’re looking to soak up the beautiful flowers in bloom or to venture out with mischievous toddlers hoping to burn off some of that energy. This Easter, join The Very Hungry Caterpillar trail at Kew Gardens and transform into a beautiful butterfly to enjoy nature differently.

Embark on a transformational journey based on Eric Carle’s much-loved children’s book, as you wind through sculptures of juicy fruits and a cosy caterpillar chrysalis along the way. Learn about the wonder of nature and the close connections between plants and insects.
