Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew's Marianne North Gallery re-opens

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew's Marianne North Gallery re-opened on Sunday 11 October as part of the gardens' 250th anniversary year.

For the Gallery to remain open to the public, the roof needed replacing and the building weather proofing. The Gallery also required state of the art environmental controls to maintain the paintings in the best possible condition for the future.

You can see an on line gallery of over 800 paintings on the Kew website.
