The Temperate House is, quite simply, a thing of beauty.
Here’s a few fun facts:
15,000 new panes of glass were installed.
4,880 square metres of floor area make it the largest remaining Victorian glasshouse in the world.
5,280 litres of paint were used.
180km of scaffolding was required during the restoration – equivalent to the length of the M25 motorway.
1,500 species and 10,000 individual plants are on display in the glasshouse.
