Kew Palace Venue Hire TW9
Nestled in the heart of Kew Gardens, The Royal Kitchens at Kew are an outstanding example of Georgian culinary life and a unique venue for events. Having lain untouched for over 200 years, the kitchens were lovingly restored and revealed for the first time in 2012.Kew Palace is the smallest and most intimate of the royal palaces. It is often likened to a ‘doll’s house’ thanks to the pleasing symmetry of its four storeys, Dutch-style rounded gables and decorative brickwork.
This unique and versatile venue offers all the facilities of a modern meeting venue, but with the added excitement of its period feel, historic resonance and high tech audio-visual facilities. The building provides a spacious and light setting, whilst retaining its unusual and intimate ambience. The venue’s event space consists of;
- KING’S DINING ROOM- This simple, but elegant hall was both the family dining room of King George III and where he entertained the leading lights of the arts and science worlds. The furnishings and décor of this dining room look as they did when King George III lived here; a time when the King hosted lively dinners for his friends, famous subjects and society’s leading lights. Today, a long, graceful table can seat 24 of your most fascinating colleagues and friends for intimate dinners. The Kings Breakfast Room, displaying objects that explore the palace’s role in raising three generations of royal children, is perfect for receptions before dinner in the King’s Dining Room
- QUEEN’S GARDEN- A glorious riverside space, exquisitely maintained by Royal Botanic Gardens Kew – Only plants and herbs known in the 17th century are grown in the garden. This enclosed garden, immediately adjacent to the palace, makes a wonderful space for summer parties in fine weather. Laid out in a 17th-century style, the garden includes a gazebo, Florentine sculpture, a sunken garden and a ‘mount’ crowned with a rotunda. This elegant formal garden is delightful for summer receptions.
- ROYAL GEORGIAN KITCHENS- Having lain untouched since Queen Charlotte’s death in 1818, the Royal Kitchens at Kew have now been opened to the public. The great kitchen is an impressive room with its original 18th century split door, roasting range, charcoal grill, pastry oven and kitchen table. This fascinating space would have been bustling with activity when the royal family was at Kew. This space is a wonderfully atmospheric venue for large receptions.
- QUEEN CHARLOTTE’S COTTAGE- Set amongst the bluebells, this rustic cottage was where the royal family picnicked and took tea on summer walks through the gardens. Today, this romantic cottage and its rural setting are a picturesque place for an intimate dinner à deux or for an informal summer gathering for 40 guests.
The experience can be enhanced with the offer of bespoke guided tours, private viewings and the opportunity to host in conjunction with a variety of receptions and dinners to make every occasion truly memorable. Kew Palace and The Royal Kitchens offer a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of London. Located on the Thames, Kew is just 30 minutes west of Central London; 5 minutes’ walk from Kew Bridge station and is ideally situated for Heathrow Airport, the M4 and the M25 motorways.
