Kew is London's largest UNESCO World Heritage site offering unique landscapes, vistas and iconic architecture from every stage of the Gardens' history. Our collection of living plants is the largest and most diverse in the world, growing out in the landscape and within our glasshouses and nurseries.
Explore the treetop canopy 18 metres above the woodland floor. Designed by Marks Barfield architects (who created the London Eye) this unique visitor attraction allows you to walk through the treetops and see views right across London.
The Palm House is Kew's most recognisable building and one of the world's most notable Victorian glass and iron structures. The rainforest climate within it supports a unique collection of palms and other tropical species drawn from some of the most threatened environments on Earth.
Kew the Music is a glorious week-long festival of summer picnic concerts set within the stunning grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Acts include Passenger, Razorlight, James, Mary J Blige and All Saints. 11–16 July.
This summer Kew Gardens will be transformed into the perfect outdoor cinema set against the backdrop of Kew Palace. We will be showing the classic films Ghostbusters, Pulp Fiction and Grease (sing-a-long). The open air screenings take place on 30 August, 6 and 7 September 2017. In collaboration with The Luna Cinema.
