The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is known for offering a lush escape from city life. While the central gardens offer a lovely respite for city dwellers, Kew’s true getaway is the rolling woodlands of Wakehurst. A feast for the senses, Wakehurst features natural forests and lakes as well as formal gardens. It is also one-of-a-kind bridge between past and future featuring both a stunning Elizabethan house and the billion seeds of the Millennium Seed Bank. With more than 465 acres to cover, it is essential that visitors have a clear guide to the estate.

Wakehurst Guide is an all-in-one reference to easily navigating and fully enjoying these West Sussex grounds. Its foldout maps, plant identification help, and information on what to see each season make this a practical reference. And its detailed history, full-color photos, and look at the future of conservation make this a companion visitors will want to keep long after they return home.
Chris Clennett is garden manager at Wakehurst Palace. He has been a professional horticulturalist and botanist for more than thirty years. Katherine Price is a horticulturist and writer.
