Climb the Great Pagoda
Weekends until Sunday 28 October, as well as October Half Term
Kew Gardens, Richmond TW9 3AB
The Great Pagoda was designed by Sir William Chambers and completed in 1762 as a gift for Princess Augusta, the founder of the botanic gardens at Kew. It offered one of the earliest and finest bird’s eye views of London. Now, following a major restoration project, you can once again climb the 253 steps to the top of the Great Pagoda and marvel at spectacular views. Inside the ten-storey octagonal tower Kew’s new exhibition will reveal why the Pagoda was built and how the Royal Family used this unique building.
