In the Gardens
A kitchen garden with a Royal history
The Kew On A Plate Kitchen Garden has been created on a site that was formerly used to grow fruit and vegetables for the royal households of Princess Augusta and George III. A team including Kew gardener Joe Archer has created a stunning kitchen garden that is a showcase of heritage varieties of fruit and vegetables. These have been selected for maximum flavour and to provide interest and ripe produce across the seasons.
A glittering night-time trail through Kew Gardens, including snowflake lights over the Palm House pond, a ball of fire across the Palm House lawn, tunnels of lights and much more. There's also a sparkling Santa's Grotto, a mini fairground with carousel and helter-skelter for the children, as well as good things to eat and drink.
