A behind-the-scenes tour of Kew's Orchid Nurseries looking at rare and delicate orchids.

Enjoy a rare chance to join us behind the scenes in Kew's orchid zones for a tour of our orchid collections. Find out how Kew propogates and nurtures the delicate plants before transferring them to the public glasshouses in the Gardens.

To join the tour meet outside White Peaks 15 minutes before your booked time. A volunteer guide will meet you and take you through to the Orchid Nursery. Tours last for approximately one hour.
