Kew Gardens

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Orchids: Celebrate the colour of Colombia runs between the 9th February and 10th March 2019.


Escape the cold winter and celebrate Colombia's remarkable diversity at this year's orchid festival. Head to the Princess of Wales Conservatory for an immersive journey through beautiful floral displays representing Colombia's wildlife, flora and fauna.

Our orchid festival is very popular! We recommend planning your trip outside of peak times to get the most out of your visit. Peak times includes weekends and half-term holidays. We expect high volumes of visitors, so queues are likely. Please note, the Princess of Wales Conservatory closes one hour before the Gardens.

There is always lots to see and do at Kew Gardens, but from time to time we have to restrict access to certain areas as we care for our plants and restore important historic buildings. Before you visit, please check our website for opening times and details of any planned closures.

We care for some of the world's rarest plant species. To protect our plants (and our visitors) we have rules around what you can and can't do in the Gardens. Please make sure you read our Garden rules before you visit.
