Orchids FestivalA stunning visual treat, this year's Orchids Festival at Kew is inspired by the biodiversity of Colombia, which is home to 4,270 species of orchids. Thousands of orchids and tropical flowers are used at the festival to create a colourful route along with a display of a carnival of animals depicting a toucan in flight, a hanging sloth and a swimming turtle. There will also be hundreds of colourful butterflies suspended from a glass ceiling. On selected evenings, you can visit the display for a series of special after dark events with music and workshops.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
