Summer at Wakehurst

This summer, explore Wakehurst, Kew’s wild botanic garden in Sussex. With over 500 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows, there’s fun for the whole family—and kids go free!

Visit various natural play spaces across the landscape – find your way through the Labyrinth, amble along mown meadow paths, and explore our ancient woodlands. You might even spot some ‘living fossil’ trees, the ancient Wollemi pine!

As you venture into our woodlands, you’ll also find Tree Trunk Trek, an adventurous log trail perfect for climbing, jumping, and balancing. In Pearcelands Wood, discover Wild Wood – an enchanting trail of coppiced hazel featuring a gallery of hand-woven sculptures – how many friendly woodland faces can you spot?

New for this summer, we’ve given our well-loved Mud Kitchen an exciting makeover – this expanded and improved area makes for even more messy play. Prepare to get muddy when you venture inside! Our resident Nature Heroes return to the gardens for Flower Power this summer holidays, giving budding botanists the chance to discover more about wildflowers and the important role they play for the planet. Are you ready to take on this nature saving mission with us?

Whatever the weather, seek out cooling woodland canopies, puddle-perfect muddy spots, perfect lawns to picnic, and space for all families to run wild this summer.
