Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew has announced new £1 tickets for those in receipt of Pension Credit or Universal Credit.

The low-cost admission scheme will be available at both Kew Gardens in London and its sister location Wakehurst, in Sussex.

The new ticketing price was announced as a way to make the gardens “accessible to a wide range of audiences”, explained a release.

For this reason, there will also be a new Young Person’s ticket at Kew Gardens costing £9 for anyone between the ages of 16 and 24 years old. These can be purchased in advance or on the day of the visit.

Richard Deverell, Director of Kew Gardens, said the team were, “really delighted to be able to offer more people a chance to experience the wonder of Kew and Wakehurst.

“We know what a wonderful thing it can be to enjoy a day out in nature and to explore the many corners of our gardens, take a picnic, listen to the beat of the wildlife and learn about the fascinating origins of some of our plants, many of which are extinct or threatened in the wild.”

Kew Gardens is home to 300 acres of landscape filled with a huge variety of trees, plants, galleries and glasshouses to see. Free festivals and exhibitions take place throughout the year, including the popular Christmas at Kew light exhibition.

Wakehurst is Kew’s wild botanic garden in Sussex, with over 500 acres of woodlands, meadows and wetlands as well as the world-renowned Millennium Seed Bank.
