Orchids FestivalA stunning visual treat, this year's Orchids Festival at Kew is inspired by the vibrant colours, culture and plant life of India. Thousands of orchids and tropical flowers are used to create beautiful floral displays in and around colourful rickshaws, Indian soundscapes and films. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings you can visit the display for a series of special after dark events with Indian music, Bodhi leaf and mandala colouring, and drop-in yoga sessions. Decorate your hands with henna and meet Kew's science and horticulture experts to learn about their work.

 

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.
