The Temperate House has a strikingly light and spacious interior and shares with the Palm House an exuberance of decorative metalwork. It boasts what is possibly the world's largest glasshouse plant -- the Chilean wine palm (Jubaea chilensis). Raised from seed in 1846, its leaves now touch the high roof.
