Kew Gardens

Climb the Great Pagoda

When:
Weekends until Sunday 28 October, as well as October Half Term

Where:
Kew Gardens, Richmond TW9 3AB

What:
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.
