Visitors to Kew Gardens this summer can enter the Pagoda for the first time in eight years, as the botanical centre launches its summer festival.

The horticultural hotspot offers guests a plant experience that promises to immerse them in its healing sanctuary, Plantasia.

Staff at Kew put the finishing touches to a 20m human-shaped raised bed last week, which has been filled with useful and medicinal plants.

Other attractions include a barefoot walking trail, a gin and tonics garden, horticultural displays and an adventure trail made from logs.

Visitors will see how life-enhancing plants and fungi affect human health in mind, body and soul at the world-renowned horticultural centre.
