Kew Palace re-opens to Groups

- open April – September 27th

 

Visitors to Kew Gardens can journey back in time some two hundred years to the charming former family home of George III, Queen Charlotte and their fifteen children. Attractions include the King’s dining room where entertainments took place with some of his most famous subjects and friends, the wax facial life-cast of George III created by Madame Tussaud herself and displays of memorabilia including the dolls house from various periods of George III’s long reign. Untouched and remarkably preserved since Queen Charlotte’s death in 1818, the royal kitchens at Kew are a fascinating insight into Georgian culinary life, see where the food for the royal table was prepared and cooked; learn about the people who worked there and read about the amazing variety of food that was served up and how.  Groups can book a guided tour of the palace and royal kitchens with our costumed palace experts for just £4 per person. Visitors can also discover the hidden gem Queen Charlotte’s Cottage in the grounds of Kew Gardens.  This delightful cottage was the family’s rustic retreat and venue for informal picnics and laughter filled afternoon teas.
