Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

Kew Gardens - London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy a day immersed in centuries of science, horticulture and history.

The world's most famous Gardens, Kew boasts acres of beautiful landscaped grounds featuring plant specimens from around the world. With Kew's spectacular glasshouses, botanical art galleries and Britain's most intimate royal palace, it's the perfect day out.

There are over 100 world-class attractions to enjoy, from iconic buildings and glasshouses to inspirational gardens and landscapes. Discover 250 years of history at the world's most famous Gardens. 

 

From 10 February to 10 March 2019 the beloved Orchids Festival returns, this will be Kew’s 24th annual Orchids Festival. Bask in the tropical paradise of Kew’s Princess of Wales Conservatory & wander amongst vibrant displays of orchids and other tropical plants and discover how Kew is helping to save endangered plant species.

 

This years theme is Colombia, which is the world's most biodiverse country for orchids with 4270 species and includes dazzling displays inspired by Colombia's wildlife and plant diversity.

 

Stepping into the Princess of Wales Conservatory, visitors will find themselves transported to an entrancing paradise evoking the sights, smells and sounds of Colombia. The experience is an immersive journey through the different zones of the glasshouse where visitors will encounter staggeringly beautiful orchid displays which each represents aspects of Colombian wildlife and culture.

 

Colombia is famed for its wildlife diversity and boasts the greatest number of bird species of any country in the world. To celebrate this, the central display of the festival will be a ‘carnival of animals’ depicting a toucan in flight, a hanging sloth and swimming turtle, all composed of stunning orchids, bromeliads and other tropical plants.

 

Colombia’s famous rainbow river, Caño Cristales, will be represented through a breath-taking cascade of hundreds of colourful hanging vandas, and visitors will also delight in an enchanting forest scene complete with life-sized jaguars. Elsewhere a dazzling display of hundreds of colourful butterflies will be suspended from the glasshouse ceiling and the legend of El Dorado will be depicted through an intricate golden floating display bursting with bright yellow orchids in the glasshouse pond.

 

*Please note that the Palace/Royal Kitchen is not open during this time. Entry is to the gardens/Orchid Festival, glasshouses, galleries, Cafes & shops only.
