Kew Palace, was once known as the “Dutch House” because of its Dutch gables
The perfectly maintained hedges and topiaries add a key architectural feature to this property

We found the exterior of Kew Palace and the Queen’s Garden to be a wonderfully tranquil retreat from the rest of the gardens. The Queen’s Garden is one of the more structured outdoor gardens at Kew, making it a great location for traditional photography.
