Super offer, love Kew

Great discount. I will definitely be using this discount again.

Kew is lovely and the CSSC offer is excellent

Great discount!

Relaxing, calm walk followed by yummy coffee. Wonderful place to wonder around and chat.

We had a wonderful day at Kew in February beFore lockdown. Family group age ranging 10-73 with something for everyone. Wheelchair user included. Disabled parking was convenient and the staff were really helpful. We all said we would return in the summer - maybe we will now

Would be better if could get free entrance for a second adult

This is a great offer from CSSC and saved us roughly £30 on this trip for 2. We went to see the Indonesian orchid display and were not disappointed. Will definitely be returning and taking advantage of the savings again.

Great addition to the CSSC offer. I attended with two 4 year olds and a 2 year old and everyone had a good time. Children’s playground is great, if there’s no prebookable spaces left arrive early and try to book at the ticket office. We did and got spaces for the kids. We had a full on day but still didn’t get to do everything so we’ll be going back in the summer.

Lovely day last Sunday

So pleased to see Kew Gardens added to the benefits for CSSC membership. Even on a cold winters day in winter, this is a lovely place to explore. There is even shelter in the greenhouses if it rains!

Fab to go to Kew Gardens for free and be able to take my husband for half price. There's so much to do I could go every day for a month and not do the same things twice. Also, the gardens are forever changing. It's the gift that keeps on giving. Thank you so much

Went today and loved it! We spent 5 hours there and it only cost £30 for 6 of us!

Went to Wakehurst today, a really lovely place for adults and kids. Great value for money too.

Lovely place and so much to do. Spend most of the day walking then went on the train which lasts 40 minutes and realised how many more things there was to visit.
