There are a large number of beautiful and bespoke conservatories throughout Britain and people travel from all over the world to see them. Here are a few of our favourites.
The Palm House
The beautiful exterior of Kew Garden’s Palm House, located in Richmond upon Thames, was designed and engineered to perfection in the Victorian times by Richard Tanner to house exotic palms, tropical and sub-tropical plants.
In order to keep all plants located inside the palm thriving, they have to be in warm and moist conditions all year round.
The Eden Project
Located in Cornwall, The Eden Project is the largest conservatory in the world and is one of the most highly visited attractions in Britain.
As well as being home to the world’s biggest indoor rainforest, The Eden Project is often host to music events, art exhibitions, workshops and can even be hired out for wedding ceremonies and reception parties throughout the year.
The Great Conservatory
Known for inspiring the beautiful creation that is today known as Crystal Palace, The Great Conservatory was designed to exhibit the Duke of Northumberland’s exotic plant collection.
The Great Conservatory is not hard to spot, located in the centre of Syon Park, Brentford, the large glass dome is a great day out for any age.
Whatever the occasion, taking a trip to Britain’s most famous and beautifully designed conservatories is the perfect day out.
