The Orangery is the most historic of Kew’s buildings, first designed by Sir William Chambers as a hothouse for citrus plants. When it transpired that the light at Kew was too low for citrus plants to prosper, the royal citrus trees were moved to Kensington Palace and the Orangery was used for other large plants.
In 1862, the Orangery was converted into a citrus museum to exhibit wood collected from British colonies. In 1989 the glasshouse was converted into a tearoom and then refurbished in 2002 to be a restaurant.
