Opened in 1863, the Temperate House is the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world. From 5 August 2013, Kew is undertaking a vital five year restoration project, costing £34.3 million. The project will restore the Temperate House and its surrounding landscape, and convert the adjoining Evolution House into a world class public engagement centre.

Kew has raised a significant proportion of the funds needed to complete this vital restoration project, but we still need to raise an additional £1 million.

Kew would like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund, Defra, Eddie and Sue Davies, The Garfield Weston Foundationa, J Paul Getty Jr Charitable Trust and other supporters of this vital restoration project.

    It's February 2014 and they still need £1m. If every adult in the UK (Around 60m) gave just 2p each, Kew would have enough to finish the job. Is it really that hard?

    Thanks for showing us this project. That is a very big structure. Do you have any tall Agaves, Cacti or Yuccas, because they could grow inside of that greenhouse. Wow, I didn't know you had Peacocks! That is cool.
