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.
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is in Richmond on the outskirts of London, and the world's most famous Gardens. It has extraordinary diversity of plants and over 14,000 trees.
