Wakehurst is run by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. It does not receive any money from the National Trust for its visitors.


Kew receives just under half of its funding from Government through the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and research councils. Further funding to support Kew’s vital work comes from donors, membership and commercial activity including ticket sales and car parking.
