GB1084 - Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (2003)

Brief Description
"This historic landscape garden features elements that illustrate significant periods of the art of gardens from the 18th to the 20th centuries. The gardens house botanic collections (conserved plants, living plants and documents) that have been considerably enriched through the centuries. Since their creation in 1759, the gardens have made a significant and uninterrupted contribution to the study of plant diversity and economic botany."

伦敦基尤皇家植物园

"基尤皇家植物园是18世纪到20世纪园林艺术发展最辉煌阶段的完美体现。现在植物园所拥有的极其丰富的有关植物学的收藏(标本、活的植物和文献),是经过了几个世纪积累的结果。自从1759年建立起,基尤皇家植物园就不断为植物多样性和经济植物学研究做出杰出贡献。"

  1. In fact, the seed bank is not a UNESCO site as the location is not in Richmond, Surrey, which is not a MC as well.
