Bicycles are not normally allowed inside Kew Gardens, but for one evening next month, two wheels can replace two feet for visitors.
Kew Gardens is a big place, so this is also a chance to see a lot more of it in far less time than would be usual, and in the evening instead of the normal day time heat. Stop for a picnic or summer drink and listen to live music; smell the aroma of the Rose Garden as the sun begins to set.
The cycling event takes place on Thursday 13th August from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
Tickets cost £20 per adult and £10 per child and can be booked here.
You need to supply your own bike, and this is intended to be a genteel pedal around the plants, not a race. Penny farthings and other fancy velocipedes are not allowed – just the conventional safety bike please.
The glasshouses are closed during the evening.
