Kew Gardens & Palace 2020

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!

The Temperate House
Kew Gardens has completed the largest restoration project in its entire history. In May 2018, the doors of its spectacular Temperate House reopened, revealing 10,000 breath-taking plants, making this magnificent structure the true jewel in Kew’s crown – an architectural wonder and a horticulturists’ haven. The world’s largest Victorian glasshouse, first opened in 1863, is home to some of the world’s rarest and most threatened plants. Sir David Attenborough spoke of his delight with the restoration.

The Palm House
An iconic Victorian glasshouse, the rainforest climate inside supports a unique collection of tropical plants from some of the most threatened environments on Earth.

The Davies Alpine House
This house displays a wide range of alpine species.

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! Please note, pre-booking is essential to avoid overcrowding.
