Winter at Kew Gardens
Crisp and fresh, now is the perfect time to emerge from hibernation and reinvigorate your senses.
The Arboretum at Kew stretches across much of the Gardens' 300 acre site. Made up of a collection of over 14,000 botanical and ornamental collections, Kew's large and comprehensive Arboretum is a delight to explore in the winter months.
Kew's iconic glass houses
Take in the beauty of winter bulbs, early iris, and crocuses in the Davies Alpine House, shelter from the inclement weather in the tropical climate of the Palm House, or discover the exotic plants and wildlife in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.
Sackler Crossing, the lake and Henry Moore
Go down to the Lake to see some interesting waterfowl. Cross over the elegant Sackler Crossing for an excellent view across the water and the Henry Moore sulpture in the distance.
What's on this winter
From 7 February until 8 March 2015, experience an explosion of colour at Kew's stunning annual orchids festival, and discover why these plants evolved to look so vibrant and enticing.
