Free. Exclusively for Friends of Kew and their usual accompaniment of guests.
Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Gardens every morning* before the gates open to all.
Take a refreshing walk, have a leisurely picnic or relax in the Victoria Plaza café – what better way to start the day!
Victoria Plaza Café will be open to purchase refreshments between 8-10am. Please note, the remaining catering outlets, glasshouses and galleries will open at the normal time of 10am.
Membership card(s) must be presented on entry at Victoria Gate.
* Except 8 & 9 May, 16 & 17 September.
For an early-morning treat, and as a thank you for your support as a Friend of Kew, every weekend during Early Openings we are offering a free smoothie to the first 50 Friends who visit on the day. Keep an eye out for our friendly garden staff who will be handing out the vouchers at Victoria Gate, on entry to the Gardens.
