Wakehurst, Kew’s wild botanic garden in Sussex. Managed by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

With over 500 acres to discover, Wakehurst is home to a dramatic and diverse landscape ranging from managed ornamental gardens, temperate woodlands and is home to the UKs largest outdoor art installation covering our Elizabethan Mansion currently undergoing vital restoration work.


Don’t miss Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank, where you can visit the largest wild seed conservation project in the world where you can see Kew scientists at work and learn about the essential conservation work of plants and fungi. There’s plenty to do for all the family, whether it’s learning about the impressive botanic collection, relaxing with a coffee or letting children run wild in natural play spaces such as Tree Trunk Trek and Wild Wood.

There’s always something to see and do in and around the ever-changing landscape to make each visit stimulating, whatever the season. We are also welcoming your canine companions into the specific parts of the gardens as of this year, so you can all enjoy a dog walk with a difference!

Regular events throughout the year. Children 16 and under free of charge.
