Experience a Kew Garden’s Escape featuring the luminous glasswork of artist, Dale Chihuly

Stay at Richmond Hill Hotel this summer and enjoy an inclusive visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, now featuring an exhibition of unique glass art installations by the celebrated returning artist Dale Chihuly.

From now until 27 October 2019, Chihuly’s iconic glass artworks once again “transform the Gardens and glasshouses into a contemporary outdoor gallery space” showcasing pieces never seen before in the UK.

Entry to Chihuly’s exhibition is included with entry to the Gardens in our bed and breakfast Kew Garden’s Escape package.

Exhibition highlights

The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew promises that “you will see the perfect marriage of art, science and nature”, with exhibition highlights including the celestial vibrant blue masterpiece Sapphire Star which will welcome you through the Garden's Victoria Gate.

The landmark Temperate House will feature a brand new centrepiece of translucent blue floral sculptures, specially designed to complement the world's largest Victorian greenhouse.

Family-friendly, the exhibition also offers a host of activities dedicated to inspiring young visitors. A “specially illustrated, colourful and engaging trail” will lead children and parents through a series of Chihuly’s artworks, mini-trampolines and outdoor play sets.

In the evening, guests will see Chihuly’s “installations illuminated by an entirely different light" as the outdoor artworks are spot lit as part of a special night time exhibition.
