Orchid3.jpg


Escape the dreary winter with Kew's annual festival of orchids and enjoy the stunning display in the Princess Of Wales Conservatory This year, they celebrate Colombia, the  world's most biodiverse country, through a spectacular ensemble of orchid-laden displays  along a curated route.

The flagship display comprises a carnival of animals, depicting a toucan in flight, a hanging sloth and a swimming turtle. They bring to life the breath-taking rainbow river Caño Cristales and Colombia's incredible forests - complete with life-sized jaguar!

With a surprise around every corner, you'll spot hundreds of colourful butterflies suspended from the glass ceiling and a floating golden-yellow  display  to honour the legend of El Dorado. 

Colombia has 4,270 species of orchids  alone. Together with its sprawling landscape of tropical beaches  to snow-capped mountains, Colombia is the perfect inspiration for our vibrant festival. This festival is a must see during a visit to London -highly recommended for all ages.
