Fri 4 - Sat 5 May Temperate House preview evenings


Be one of the first to see the beautifully restored Temperate House at our exclusive preview evenings. 4 and 5 May only.

Kew’s magnificent Temperate House has been closed to visitors for the past five years, whilst extensive restoration work has taken place.

We are offering the exclusive opportunity to be among the first visitors to experience the newly-restored ‘greatest glasshouse in the world’.

Discover thousands of plants from the temperate regions of the world – many of which are rare or threatened in their natural habitats – whilst enjoying themed cocktails and food bought from our pop-up bar.

Ambient music will add to the atmosphere and Kew’s own horticultural team will be on hand to offer guided tours during what promises to be a magical evening.
