I’ve always found glasshouses romantic. This one in particular, not only because it is the largest surviving Victorian greenhouse in the world – first opened in 1863, or the fact that it houses 10,000 fascinating plants, some of which are the rarest and most threatened on the planet… What draws me in is the light and luckily for me we visited this magical place on the most glorious sunny day.
After 5 years of restoration, this architectural wonder is once again open for visitors of all ages.
Designed by Decimus Burton, who also designed the Palm House, it is home to temperate plants from Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific Islands.
After experiencing the Temperate House, wander through the tropical Palm House, visit The Hive, enjoy stunning views from the Treetop Walkway and stop off for lunch at Kew’s newest restaurant, The Botanical.
