Looking for something to brighten up your February? Step inside the Princess of Wales conservatory for our spectacular displays showcasing Thailand's vibrant culture and magnificent plant life and become transported into a tropical paradise.  
Behind the scenes
With less than one month to go, preparations for our annual Orchids festival are well underway. If we haven't convinced you already; take a look at some of the behind the scenes images.
Just some of the beautiful colourful orchids that will be part of the festival.
Handcrafted Thai umbrellas will be suspended from the ceiling.
Hanging paper lanterns begin to adorn the roof of the conservatory.
Orchids Festival: After Hours
Why not make your visit even more special by attending our After Hours event where you will be able to enjoy exclusive access after the Gardens close.
Wander amongst the vibrant orchid displays, watch traditional dance performances, try on authentic clothing and taste Thai cuisine and tropical cocktails. Get together with friends and enjoy this adult only evening.
