Kew Gardens, a World Heritage Site, has a variety of stunning wedding venues set within 300 acres of world renowned botanical gardens. A rural pocket in West London, Kew Gardens has excellent transport links to the centre of London and Heathrow Airport. Whether you are looking for a smaller, intimate service or to go lavish and large, your chosen venue in Kew Gardens is exclusive to you on the day of your event.
For a quaint, boutique style wedding venue full of character and charm, Cambridge Cottage is Kews own elegant former royal residence, set within its own private gardens with two function rooms suitable for both the wedding ceremony and reception. Cambridge Cottage can seat 80 people for a civil ceremony and dining, and up to 150 guests for the after dinner party.
If you are looking for a larger guest number, you may be interested in our multiple venue hire package, which includes the Nash Conservatory for your civil ceremony, Princess of Wales Conservatory for your drinks reception and the Orangery for your dinner dance venue which all accommodate up to 200 guests.
The Nash Conservatory, moved brick by brick from Buckingham Palace to Kew by King William IV in 1836, is a beautiful 19th Century glasshouse that provides a versatile event space for both daytime and evening weddings. For a truly unique event experience, enjoy a canapé reception in the Princess of Wales Conservatory, famed for its rare orchids and Chinese Water Dragons. The magnificent Orangery is ideal for large wedding receptions, with high ceilings and grand arched windows, overlooking the private terrace and lawn.
For religious ceremonies, The Sir Joseph Banks Building is a striking, partly subterranean space that is appropriate for both daytime and evening events. Large windows within the main room overlook the surrounding lake at water level, which provides a tranquil setting and an abundance of natural daylight.
Whichever venue you choose for your special day, your wedding will help Kew to continue our valuable plant conservation and life-saving research work.
