Kew Royal Botanic Gardens ~ Alluring Orchids

Escape the Winter cold and enter the steamy Princess of Wales Conservatory at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, for a truly beautiful orchid festival.

Escape the Winter cold and enter the steamy Princess of Wales Conservatory at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, for a truly beautiful orchid festival, 2019 will mark Kew's 24th annual Orchids Festival.

 

The beloved Orchids Festival returns with a display of Colombia, the world's most biodiverse country for orchids with 4,270 species. Stepping into the Princess of Wales Conservatory, you will find yourself transported to an entrancing paradise evoking the sights, smells and sounds of Colombia. The experience is an immersive journey through the different zones of the glasshouse where visitors will encounter staggeringly beautiful orchid displays which each represent aspects of Colombian wildlife and culture.

 

Colombia's famous rainbow river, Cano Cristales, will be represented through a breath-taking cascade of hundreds of colourful hanging verandas, and visitors will also delight in an enchanting forest scene complete with life-sized jaguars. Elsewhere, a dazzling display of hundreds of colourful butterflies will be suspended from the glasshouse ceiling and the legend of El Dorado will be depicted through an intricate golden floating display, bursting with bright yellow orchids in the glasshouse pond.

 

It promises to be a truly stunning event and will make the perfect day out for those looking for colour and heat during the dark days of winter.
