The Orangery

With high ceilings and grand, arched windows, the Orangery is filled with atmosphere from morning into the night.

The Orangery at night

The large, open plan design of this venue makes it ideal for a whole range of events, from drinks and cocktail receptions to award ceremonies and festive corporate events.  

During the summer months, guests can enjoy the large terrace with its spectacular views of the landscape, with lights illuminating the surrounding trees at night. 

Both the Princess of Wales Conservatory and Nash Conservatory can be used as pre-dinner drinks venues for guests who wish to book the Orangery for an evening event but also require a space at Kew Gardens before 7pm.
