London's hidden gem

London's hidden gem

Picturesque palace

Set in the unspoilt grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens, this picturesque palace is the perfect West London setting for your special dinner or reception.

Kew may be a royal palace, but it was also once a family home. King George III, Queen Charlotte and their children all left an indelible mark on this amazing building during their time here, and the atmosphere remains equal parts regal and intimate.

Today, you can treat your guests to a dinner to remember in an historic Grade I-listed venue that has lost none of its cosy charm over the centuries. What better way to mark your special occasion?
