Once inside, visitors can explore Kew's incredible living plant collections on foot, which feature some of the world's most rare and endangered plants.Discover unique tropical plants in the rainforest of the Palm House, wander around the Temperate House, the world’s largest surviving Victorian glasshouse, and travel through 10 climatic zones in the Princess of Wales Conservatory, or simply enjoy relaxing in nature in Kew’s 320 acres.In 2021, Kew launched a ten-year sustainability strategy, which includes a commitment to become Climate Positive by 2030 – going beyond net zero to have a positive impact on the climate. Kew's scientists and horticulturists are working to use their world-leading expertise to evidence and shape sustainable practices, and support nature-based solutions for climate, biodiversity and livelihoods.
