In the Gardens
Kew's glasshouses and art galleries are perfect for when the weather is cold or wet. Crisp winter days see the Gardens looking dramatic as the trees frost over and winter flowers come into bloom. It's the perfect time to take a walk with one of our volunteer guides and find out about the plants that look their best at this time of year.
During autumn look out for the seedheads of the Himalayan lilies in the Water Gardens. The berberis and polygonums always look especially good at this time of year.
Walk through Horsebridge Wood and see the spectacular cherry birch from the east coast, USA turn a rich golden yellow. Try pressing the leaves of these trees to release the scent of wintergreen.
