KEW GARDENS WITH GUIDED TOUR
The iconic Temperate House is now open following a 5 year restoration project.
Tickets £29 on sale 17 July and 18 September 2018. Optional guided tour of the Temperate House for £5 extra.
The Arts Society Arun visited Kew Gardens on 2 October 2018, a warm and mostly sunny day. The highlight of the day was a guided tour through the gardens to the newly refurbished Temperate House where our knowledgeable guide explained the work and improvements made over the 5 year period. Most of our visitors managed the Treetop Walk, a visit to the Beehive and the other memorable features.
Despite the distances and sometimes confusing layout, all found their way back to the coach.
