Kew Gardens

Covering an impressive 300 acres and containing over 30,000 species of plants, World Heritage site Kew was founded in 1759. A prime visitor attraction, but also a world leader in plant conservation, it does important work to preserve species like the orchid and teach the public about their cultivation. There are several iconic buildings at Kew, including the steamy iron and glass Palm House, designed to accommodate the exotic species when it was introduced into Europe in Victorian times. Other features include a new botanic art gallery the Shirley Shirwood, and the Xstrata Treetop Walkway, a 200m long bridge overlooking Capability Brown’s woodland.

    Who believed in putting plants in their rightful place?

    Until Sunday 17th September 2017

    Joseph Hooker (1817-1911) contributed much to Kew from his travelling and plants collections. He ‘practiced drawing incessantly’ and advised other botanists to do the same. On the 200th anniversary of his birth, Kew will be holding an exhibition to highlight his contribution to Kew and botany in general.
