Restoring the Temperate House at Kew Gardens
Opened in 1863, the Temperate House is the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world. From 5 August 2013, Kew is undertaking a vital five year restoration project, costing £34.3 million. The project will restore the Temperate House and its surrounding landscape, and convert the adjoining Evolution House into a world class public engagement centre.
Kew has raised a significant proportion of the funds needed to complete this vital restoration project, but we still need to raise an additional £1 million.

Kew would like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund, Defra, Eddie and Sue Davies, The Garfield Weston Foundationa, J Paul Getty Jr Charitable Trust and other supporters of this vital restoration project.
