Spaces At This Venue

Kew Gardens, Cambridge Cottage

Cambridge Cottage

Cambridge Cottage is an elegant venue that was once a former royal residence. The Drawing Room and Gallery are adorned with opulent decor and beautiful botanical artwork, with both rooms opening onto the private and tranquil Duke’s Garden.

Kew Gardens, The Temperate House

The Temperate House

An iconic venue, the Temperate House is the world’s largest Victorian glasshouse and features 10,000 species of rare plants from around the globe. With a grand entrance, spiral staircase, balcony and pitched roof, the large Grade I listed building is a truly memorable setting for events of up to 300 guests.

Kew Gardens, The Nash Conservatory

The Nash Conservatory

Sitting on the Garden border, the sophisticated Nash Conservatory provides an abundance of natural light through its floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful views onto the Gardens. The 19th-century glasshouse was originally built in the grounds of Buckingham Palace and moved to Kew in 1836, where it is now a popular space for a wide range of events, from presentations to product launches and corporate away-days to drinks receptions.

Kew Gardens, The Orangery

The Orangery

The Orangery is a magnificent open-plan space for large events, including wedding receptions, festive corporate events, and dinner dances. The venue features high ceilings and grand arched windows that fill the room with natural light. Guests can also enjoy the large terrace and its beautiful landscape views in summer months.

Kew Gardens Corporate Function, The Princess of Wales Conservatory

Princess of Wales Conservatory

The Princess of Wales Conservatory is a truly dazzling setting for any evening event. Becoming beautifully illuminated after dark, it makes a perfect space for a drinks reception where guests can wander through the complex glasshouse and its different climates.

Kew Gardens, Sir Joseph Banks Building

Sir Joseph Banks Building

St Joseph Banks Building is a striking subterranean building that was originally built to house Kew’s Economic Botany Collection. Filled with natural light, the bright space provides a relaxing setting for corporate functions, drinks receptions, or private dining, and features a private atrium which can be used to welcome guests.

Kew Gardens, Marianne North Gallery

Smaller Spaces

Orangery Conference Room is a bright, contemporary space for small corporate functions of up to 30 guests and is equipped with an in-built screen and projector. For small-medium parties, the Marianne North Gallery offers a spectacular setting for private evening events. Originally opened in 1882, the Gallery was beautifully restored in 2008 and houses more than 800 paintings by artist Marianne North.

Venue Testimonials

I cannot speak highly enough of the team and the staff. The Drawing Room and Gallery are beautiful spaces for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. We were fortunate to have gorgeous weather on the day so were able to make the most of the private garden for our drinks reception and group photos. […] The staff […] were really helpful in planning the day and on the day itself.

Great quaint venue for events […], with its own garden backing out into the botanical garden itself.

We held my son's wedding in Kew Gardens, using three of the buildings including the Orangery for dinner and dancing, the Nash Conservatory for a blessing and the Princess of Wales Conservatory for drinks. It was a huge success. The staff […] were brilliant, the locations stunning and it all came together to give us all a memorable day. […] Strongly recommended.
