Find your nature

Do you feel like an adventurer, wanderer, time traveller, protector or dreamer?

This summer, Kew has invited a mix of inspiring leaders to contribute to five new trails through the Gardens. Each trail is made up of invitations from artists, musicians, and environmentalists to feel, hear, move, and think differently in nature.

Pop by the Wander Project Exchange to find out more and leave your own written invitation for others to enjoy too.

With five possible trails to choose from, your day will be full of Kew’s iconic sights in fun and unexpected ways.
