The Greatest Glasshouse in the World Awaits

Published: 12 Apr 2018

Kew Gardens is in the final month of the largest restoration project in its entire history. On 5 May, the doors of its spectacular Temperate House will be thrown open, revealing 10,000 breathtaking plants, making this magnificent structure the true jewel in Kew’s crown – an architectural wonder, horticulturists’ haven, the most captivating of classrooms.

Originally designed by world-famous architect Decimus Burton, heritage architects Donald Insall have updated and modernised key features to enable the building to function as a contemporary working space. Over 69,000 individual elements were removed from the building and cleaned, repaired or replaced. This included the replacement of a staggering 15,000 panes of glass.

Be one of the first to host your event in the magnificently restored Temperate House. Please contact the events team at Kew on 0844 8733961 or email venues@kew.org
