Join Environment Trust and Royal Botanic Gardens guide, Libby Insall, on 2nd April for an exclusive tour of the Temperate House - the world's largest surviving Victorian glasshouse!

First opened in 1863, the Grade I listed glasshouse was designed by Decimus Burton and took several decades to build, with the wings not completed until 1899. It contains over 1,500 species of plants from across the world's temperate regions, including a cycad from South Africa, which known as the loneliest plant at Kew because only one specimen has ever been found in the wild!
