Follow the progress of the Temperate House restoration project, from removing the plants, removing each pane of glass, to renovating the complete 4,880 square metres of glasshouse. Find out how you can help to restore this historical glasshouse.
Opened in 1863, the Temperate House is the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world. From August 2013, Kew is undertaking a vital five year restoration project, costing £34.3 million. The project will restore the Temperate House and its surrounding landscape, and convert the adjoining Evolution House into a world class public engagement centre.
