The Nash Conservatory

A bright and sophisticated glasshouse on the borders of the Gardens.

The Nash Conservatory

Originally built in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, the Nash Conservatory was moved brick-by-brick to Kew in 1836.  

This 19th century glasshouse can accommodate a wide range of events, from presentations to product launches, corporate away days to drinks receptions, and much more. Floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides create a wealth of natural daylight with relaxing views onto the Gardens.  

The Nash Conservatory may also be used for pre-dinner drinks before moving on to the Orangery for an evening dinner dance, or perhaps as a lunch venue when using the Sir Joseph Banks Building for a conference. 

Corporate packages 

The Nash Conservatory is available for dry hire or alternatively we offer day delegate rates. Packages include exclusive venue hire along with delicious food and drink from our selected caterers. We also offer various options for team building activities.
