Kew Gardens - April at Kew Gardens

April at Kew Gardens

It’s April and the Gardens are beginning to fill with spring colour. You’ll find paths lined with magnolias and the landscape filled with blossom – the perfect time for a visit to Kew!

This month sees the re-opening of Kew Palace - the summer home of King George III, one of the lesser known royal residences in London and the oldest building within the Gardens.

There's less than one month to go until the re-opening of Temperate House, the world's greatest glasshouse. Join us for an exclusive preview evening on 4 or 5 May.
Please note that throughout April 2018 we open daily at 10am and close at 7pm, with last entry at 6pm.
