Orchid Festival | Kew Gardens

This year’s Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens celebrates the incredible biodiversity of Colombia.

The standout highlight of the display is a carnival of animals, depicting a toucan in flight, a hanging sloth and a swimming turtle.

A surprise around every corner, visitors can spot hundreds of colourful butterflies suspended from the glass ceiling and a floating golden-yellow display to honour the legend of El Dorado. 

Colombia has 4,270 species of orchids alone. Together with its sprawling landscape of tropical beaches to snow-capped mountains, Colombia is the perfect inspiration for this annual vibrant festival. 

The Orchid Festival at Kew ends on Sunday, 10 March 2019.
