Benefit from the longer summer daylight hours and pay £7 for a late-entry ticket to Kew Gardens, from 3.30pm, instead of a full-price £14.50.
You could see the Palm House's extensive collection of tropical plants, stroll around the crowns of trees on the Xstrata Treetop Walkway, or take a boat trip on the Tutti Frutti Boating Lake and explore the banana grotto beneath the floating pineapple island, part of the IncrEdibles festival that showcases the vast number of edible plants growing in the gardens.
