Step into a horticultural paradise inspired by traditional and modern Indian culture at Kew Gardens’ annual Orchids Festival.
See the famous gardens transformed by floral installations in the shape of elephants, peacocks, tigers and a giant Indian flag.
Breathe in the fragrance of hundreds of beautiful flowers and let the sounds of bicycle bells, temple song and muezzin calls transport you to the streets of India.
Alongside the displays of orchids, you’ll find cheerfully decorated rickshaws and film screenings taking place inside the Princess of Wales Conservatory.
Experience the exhibits after dark at one of the Orchids Lates evenings, where you’ll get the chance to try botanical cocktails, listen to live performances of traditional Indian music and take part in hands-on workshops.
