Kew Gardens, officially known as the Royal Botanic Gardens in West London is one of the world's most important botanical gardens. The 132ha (326 acres) large domain boasts a collection of about fifty thousand different plant species as well as many impressive buildings such as the Palm House and the ten-story Pagoda.
The history of the botanical garden goes back to 1759, when Princess Augusta, mother of king George III, started developing a 3.6 ha large garden at the domain of White Lodge, Richmond in west London. This garden was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
