Installed at Kew Gardens in 2016, the Hive is a unique, multi-sensory experience designed to highlight the extraordinary life of bees. The Hive is a feat of British engineering standing some 17m square and set in a wildflower meadow where you can explore and consider the complex relationship between plants and their pollinators. The Hive is an immersive sound and visual experience. The lights you see and the sounds you hear inside the Hive are triggered by bee activity in a real beehive at Kew.
The intensity of the sounds and light change constantly, echoing that of the real beehive. The multi award-winning Hive was inspired by scientific research into the health of honeybees. It is a visual symbol of the pollinators’ role in feeding the planet and the challenges facing bees today.
