Botanical garden with the world's largest seed conservation project
The National Trust's most visited place. Open throughout the year, Wakehurst is the country estate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
The varied landscape is of international significance for its beautiful botanic gardens and tree collections, as well as for its science-based plant conservation and research.
A feast for the senses, Wakehurst features natural woodland and lakes, formal gardens, an Elizabethan house (five unfurnished rooms) and the 21st-century architecture of Kew's Millennium Seed Bank.
Wakehurst marks an international conservation milestone in 2010, having conserved seeds from ten per cent of the world's plant species.
