Time Out says

The Princess of Wales Conservatory at Kew Gardens is getting a Madagascan makeover this February, courtesy of the latest annual mind-bending orchid display that takes over the iconic glasshouse each year. As ever, the exotic display will celebrate Madagascar’s natural beauty and biodiversity – the place is home to 14,000 plants found nowhere else in the world.  

Look out for sculptures of native animals, carved out of plants, including giraffe weevils and ring-tailed lemurs, installations on extinct species and learn more about the Malagasy orchids that grow at Kew. As always, there’ll also be after-hours events with live Madagascan music, food, cocktails, talks and light displays. 

Entry to the display is included in general entry to Kew Gardens.
After hours events: £17-£22 


Free with admission
Opening hours:
10am to 4pm
