Kew Gardens & Palace 2019

Kew Gardens has been a firm favourite for groups for many years and with its ever changing seasons and series of events it’s easy to see why. With such a wide range of permanent and temporary exhibitions and displays there are many reasons to visit, again and again! With so much to see and do, we recommend a full day’s visit to Kew to allow plenty of time to explore all that this fantastic garden has to offer.

Kew Palace & The Royal Kitchens
An intimate palace that brings to life the joys and sorrows of George III and his family, from his children’s lives to his own hardships. Next to the Palace, the Georgian royal kitchen remains miraculously preserved, 200 years after it was last used. There is a little kitchen garden to the rear, which gives a flavour of what the Georgian kitchen gardens were like.

The Treetop Walkway
Opened in 2008, the Treetop Walkway stands in the Arboretum, between the Temperate House and the lake. At 18 metres high, it enables visitors to walk around the crowns of lime, sweet chestnut and oak trees.

The Hive
Just step inside and discover the secret life of bees! Davies Alpine House Opened in 2006, the Davies Alpine House was the first new glasshouse to be commissioned for two decades and is located at the north end of the Rock Garden. Things to look out for… the house displays a wide range of campanulas, dianthus, small ferns, small lavenders, primulas, saxifrage, thymes, tulips and verbascums along with lesser-known species - one of the rarest occupants in the glass house is the Chilean blue crocus, which has scented, cobalt-blue flowers with white centres.

Christmas At Kew
Take an enchanting journey into a glittering wonderland with Christmas at Kew, the
popular after-dark Christmas event that offers a fantastic display of more than 60,000 lights set around the garden. Little ones can catch a glimpse of Santa and his elves preparing for  Christmas in the North Pole village and enjoy  a ride on the Victorian Carousel and helter skelter. There are also plenty of delicious Christmas treats and warming winter drinks to be enjoyed in this magical atmosphere that’s guaranteed to get you into the festive spirit!

It follows one of the first Great Roads commissioned by the Kings of England and showcases every day England and world-famous heritage, combining a mesmerising mix of picture postcard villages, rolling hills and historic cities.
