Join us to celebrate summer with a magical evening bike ride.

This is a unique opportunity for you to bring your bike and explore Kew’s most beautiful spots. 

Our Botanic Gardens come alive on two wheels. Bicycles aren’t usually allowed in the Gardens, so this is a chance to see Kew from a new perspective and leisurely explore the Gardens with friends and family. 

Take in the enchanted woodlands and beautiful blooms; stop for a picnic or summer drink and listen to live music; smell the aroma of the Rose Garden as the sun begins to set.
