Welcome to Kew’s new website! Whether this is the first time you’ve visited the site or you are a regular user, we hope that you’ll like the new design and content you’ll find. But it’s way more than a lick of paint – the site is packed with new features.
Kew is all about plants and fungi, and what better way to start exploring some of Kew’s hundreds of thousands of plants than by using our species pages. This resource will grow over the coming months, bringing you some of the most interesting, iconic and useful plants in the world.
Our global map lets you explore Kew’s key conservation projects around the world, with stories from China to Madagascar showing how Kew is making a difference.
And to get the most from your visit to either Kew or Wakehurst Place, use our interactive garden map to make sure you don’t miss anything. If you take some interesting photos on your visit, why not add them to the website via our Flickr feed.
All in all we think there will be plenty to keep you engaged – and we’d love to hear your views or suggestions on the new site by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll also be adding video and audio content via our media player, an online shop and a virtual exploration of Kew’s refurbished Marianne North Gallery.
So please check back soon!
