Historical information

Cambridge Cottage is known in the Gardens as 'Kew Gardens Gallery'.  It was purchased from Lord Bute, Princess Augusta's botanical advisor, by George III and presented to his seventh son, the Duke of Cambridge. In 1840 it was remodelled and extended to form his permanent residence.

The Gallery shows exhibitions of botanical art by past and contemporary artists and other subjects such as the graphically exciting London Transport posters which have regularly featured trips to Kew since 1908.
