Kew also hosts the Swing Village which offers a variety of foods to buy, and free products to try.

The Temperate House closed in August 2013, to allow Kew to undertake a vital five year restoration project, costing £34.3 million. The project means that for the first time in the history of the Kew the Music concerts they will not take place with the backdrop of the Temperate House.  The new site is situated the Great Lawn opposite Kew Palace.
