Includes entrance to Kew Gardens and the Chrysanthemum Festival

Chrysanthemums, sometimes called mums or chrysanths, are flowering plants of the genus Chrysanthemum in the family Asteraceae. They are native to Asia and northeastern Europe. Most species originate from East Asia and the centre of diversity is in China. Countless horticultural varieties and cultivars exist.

Vast and eye-catching displays of vibrant Chrysanthemums will fill the Temperate House as part of the event, which will be drawing its inspiration from Japan in its inaugural year.

The Kew Chrysanthemum Festival is expected to run during October 2022

If you are travelling to London in February, don’t miss out on the beauty of the Chrysanthemum Festival. Check out the Orchid Festival at Kew here, while information for the spectacular winter Kew illuminations in December is available here.

Suggested itinerary by coach

Day 1

Travel to London and arrive at your hotel

On route to the hotel why not stop at one of the many attractions in the area, such as The Musical Museum, the Water & Steam Museum, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum or maybe Windsor and the Castle. We will be delighted to make the arrangements for you, or offer some alternative suggestions.

Continue to your hotel in the Heathrow area for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 2

Kew Gardens and the Chrysanthemum Festival

You will take breakfast in your hotel, then drive to Kew Gardens.

Kew contains the most diverse collection of living plants of any botanic garden in the world. The collection contains plants from tropical, temperate, arid and alpine climates, which are grown out in the gardens and in controlled conditions within glasshouses and nurseries.

Large eye-catching displays of vibrant Chrysanthemums will fill the Temperate House as part of the event, which will be drawing its inspiration from japan in its inaugural year.

We have also included the Kew Gardens hop-on hop-off land train in the tour. This 72 seat vehicle (which will be shared with other guests), will take you on a 45 minute tour around the Gardens on the Kew Explorer land train. The knowledgeable drivers will give a commentary about Kew’s flora and fauna, historic buildings and vital conservation work.

You can get on and off at any stop on the route (seven stops in total) or stay on for a full circuit.

When you feel like a break, there are four restaurants/cafes in the gardens offering everything from a cup of tea and a piece of cake, to full meals. Don’t forget to visit one of the shops before you leave.

Return home in the afternoon.
