Temperate House at Kew A Grade I listed building at Kew , the spectacular Temperate House is the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world. One of seven glasshouses at Kew, it's twice the size of the Palm House and houses an internationally important collection of temperate zone plants, including some of the rarest and most threatened. Following a five-year, £41 million renovation project - the biggest in its entire history - Kew reopens the building in May 2018, having replaced thousands of panes of glass, intricate ironwork and brought in 10,000 plants. Showing the importance of plants, 1,500 species are housed here, from temperate regions around the world - the Mediterranean, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South and Central America, Asia, and Island floras. So you might find yourself in Mauritius where the only Dombeya mauritiana tree in cultivation grows, or in Nepal where Taxus wallichiana, a chemotherapy drug grows. A beacon of plant education and a real jewel in Kew's crown, set in the most tranquil corner of the world famous gardens.
