LATE SPRING AT KEW GARDENS AND KEW PALACE
Saturday 25th May
Whatever the season, the Gardens at Kew are a treat for the senses and brimming with botanic treasures. In late May the display of flowers on the laburnum pergola is spectacular. Its golden yellow and sweet-scented flowers appear in chains up to 25cm long that frame the colonnade in a bright and fragrant array. Designed to complement Kew Palace, the Queen’s Garden is dedicated exclusively to the plants and architectural styles of the 17th century. Kew Palace is the smallest and most intimate of the royal palaces. It was purchased by George III in 1781 to accommodate his expanding family, subsequently becoming a more permanent home for the Royal Family. Queen Charlotte died here in 1818 and having lain untouched since her death, the Royal Kitchens at Kew can now be explored for the very first time. Your visit will open the door to a lost space and let you discover more about life in the historic times, the servants who worked in the kitchens and Georgian culinary life. Take advantage of an optional ticket to ride on the Land Train for a guided tour of the Gardens for just £5.00 extra. There a wide variety of cafes and restaurants available for refreshments and the gift shop has a great range gifts, plants and books to purchase.
