Visitors to Kew pay just £1 if in receipt of Universal Credit!

This year, a new low-cost entry is being introduced for a visit to Kew Gardens and its sister site, Wakehurst in Sussex, for people in receipt of Universal Credit or Pension Credit.

The offer is part of a suite of new pricing aimed to make both gardens more accessible to people of all ages and all incomes to enjoy a great day out in nature.  This was part of the promises made by Kew when it launched is Manifesto for Change in early 2020 stating that ‘Kew must be accessible to a wide range of audiences’.

Kew Gardens boasts over 300 acres of landscape including a collection of 14,000 trees, four major glasshouses, art galleries, an award-winning children’s garden and the popular Hive installation, as well as free temporary festivals and exhibitions all year round.

Wakehurst, Kew’s wild botanic garden in Sussex, is located near the town of Haywards Heath.  Home to the world-famous Millennium Seed Bank, Wakehurst boasts 535 acres of native temperate woodlands, meadows and wetlands in its beautiful landscape, including spectacular views of the South Downs and a year-round programme of visitor activities for all ages.

The new ticket will allow anyone who is in receipt of Pension credit or Universal credit to pre book online at www.kew.org or to walk up and pay their £1 on the gate
