Discover more about all aspects of the fascinating, world-leading science, conservation and horticultural work that Kew is undertaking via a different seasonally interesting plant or fungus group each month.
During the guided tour you will meet the knowledgeable and enthusiastic Kew staff who care for the plants growing in the collections and those who undertake research and conservation work behind the scenes. You will learn more about why these plants are grown at Kew and how they are cared for. You will see historic herbarium specimens, artefacts from the Economic Botany Collection and visit the Jodrell Laboratory to see science in action.
No other regular guided tour allows you this amazing opportunity to quiz Kew staff about their work, or to get behind the scenes at Kew. We look forward to seeing you.
