Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a non-departmental public body in the United Kingdom sponsored by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. An internationally important botanical research and education institutionKew consists mainly of the gardens themselves and a small surrounding community. Royal residences in the area which would later influence the layout and construction of the gardens began in 1299 when Edward I moved his court to a manor house in neighbouring Richmond (then called Sheen). That manor house was later abandoned; however, Henry VII built Sheen Palace in 1501, which, under the name Richmond Palace, became a permanent royal residence for Henry VII.

Go on an adventure through Kew Gardens!
Travel the world in this glittering cathedral – home to 1,500 species of plants from
Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific Islands.
Following a major five-year renovation process, the Temperate House re-opened
in 2018 to showcase the splendour of the world’s temperate zones.
As temperate plants, all the species contained within its walls need to live in conditions above 10oC to survive. Despite being the foundation of much life on Earth, many of these plants are under threat.
The Temperate House tells the story of how Kew and partners all around the world
are working to rescue plants that are rare or already extinct in the wild.
