Indoor fun for your little one
Most of us have heard of Kew Gardens - the world-famous botanical gardens in West London - but, have you heard of the indoor play area within Kew Gardens called Climbers and Creepers?

Aimed at youngsters aged around three to nine years old, Climbers and Creepers is Britain's first interactive botanical play zone, and is designed to make plant-life fun and engaging for children.

Inside Climbers and Creepers

The area has been built inside a spacious old green house in the heart of the gardens and enables little-ones to be 'insects' climbing through plants, sliding through tunnels, having fun and hopefully learning a little bit about plants too.

The play area also extends outside, where there are even more climbing frames, slides and seesaws to play on if the weather permits. It all got a big thumbs-up from our three-year-old.

Next to the play area there are a couple of family-friendly restaurants, as well as toilets and a shop, so it is the ideal spot for families with young children, not to mention the idyllic setting.

Entrance to Climbers and Creepers is included in the main ticket price so you can drop in to the clean and safe play area after exploring the extensive gardens: at the gate a standard adult ticket costs 15, and children aged 4-16 get in for 3.50. It is a bit cheaper if you book online and family tickets are available too.

Kew Gardens is open daily from 10am and Kew Gardens tube station (District Line and London Overground, zone 3) is 400 metres away from the Victoria Gate entrance to the gardens. For more information about Climbers and Creepers, visit the website.
