Activate your Friends gift membership

Activate your membership now and start enjoying free visits to our Gardens.

If you are planning to visit the Gardens in the next 48 hours, or if you do not have an email address, call 020 8332 3200 to ensure immediate activation of your membership. 

Otherwise, please complete the form below. Your membership cards will be sent to you by post within two weeks.

Enter the activation code exactly as it appears in your gift pack or your gift email, including hyphens and without spaces, eg AB12-34CD-EF56-GH78

Important - you will need to enter an email address for the activation to work.


Only one gift code can be activated using this email address. If you use a shared email address with someone else who is about to activate a Friends gift membership, call us on 020 8332 3200.

We will use your details to contact you about your Friend gift membership and its benefits.

All members can access the digital PDF version of Kew magazine and the Kew magazine iPad app. However, if you would also like to receive a paper copy (three times a year), please tick here:

We would like to contact you occasionally about other Kew events, priority booking, special offers and about how you can support Kew’s science and conservation work. Tick here if you would prefer not to receive this information from Kew:

If your gift email states that this is a joint membership, ie for two adults living at the same address, enter the name of the second adult here:


If you received an Individual Friend gift pack and would like to add a second adult to the membership for just £28, please call us on 020 8332 3200.
