Why Kew Palace is a truly special spot for spoiling your staff and clients

If you’ve just rolled your eyes of the thought of Kew Palace being anything different to the many stately buildings and royal palaces the country has to offer, we wouldn’t blame you. But we are also here to tell you that you are wrong. So very wrong.

Kew Palace actually offers one of the most special dining experiences we have seen at similar venues. Tucked away in the picturesque Kew Gardens, it’s where King George III and his wife Queen Charlotte lived with their children, and the residential feel is kept very much alive.

The historic Grade I-listed venue offer four different event spaces, as well as the option of a private tour (more on that later). Our favourite space has to be the Royal Kitchens, which is where the King’s staff cooked the George’s meals. With the original copper boilers, charcoal stoves and colourful brickwork still intact, it makes for a unique dining experience. With a 40-person capacity, it’s fairly intimate, too.

Weather permitting, we would have the drinks reception in the enclosed Queen’s Garden where a gazebo, Florentine sculptures and a sunken garden form a sophisticated and Insta-worthy setting.

For entertainment, we would get a private tour organised. Excitingly, this gives an insight into Britain’s smallest palace and the domestic life of George III and his family. Curiosities and knick-knack from their time at the palace are scattered around. The private tour ticket furthermore gives access to Kew Gardens, which is worth a visit on its own.

Tickets start at £650 for up to 10 guests, with additional tickets start at £65pp. If you want to add the Royal Kitchens to your tour, it’s an additional £10pp. Room hire prices and minimum spend vary and are available upon request.
