500 acres of stunning botanic gardens and the world’s largest ex situ conservation project nestled in the Sussex countryside.
Explore Wakehurst’s 500 acres and discover ornamental gardens, nature reserve, meadows, woodlands and wetlands. Visit the Grade 1 listed Elizabethan mansion last privately owned in 1963. Take a stroll through the Walled Garden, planted in its English cottage garden style and contrasting Pleasaunce dominated by formal clipped yew hedges planted in the 1800s. Don’t miss Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank and learn more about how Kew is making a difference around the world.
The Mansion and Millennium Seed Bank are also available for venue hire. The ground floor of the Mansion, consisting of three adjoining rooms, can be used in a variety of ways to accommodate an array of different events from weddings to private parties; and conferences to away days. The ground floor of the Mansion House opens out onto the stunning formal lawns and gardens that can be used for drinks receptions and outdoor events.
The Millennium Seed Bank is a totally unique venue and a stark contrast to the Elizabethan Mansion, the large Glass House structure set within the heart of the Seed Bank is available for drinks receptions, evening receptions and seated dining.
