Trees glorious trees, beautiful proud ducks, plenty of places to hide, a picnic lovers paradise and a floral feast. I’m talking about Kew Gardens, it was ‘blooming’ lovely last weekend, perfect for lazing or strolling.
My second visit to Kew Gardens was a sunny and curious one – my last visit must have been well over ten years ago!
There seem to be quite a few things that are under construction and ‘due to open soon’ around the garden. The new children’s garden is set to open next year, and the Japenese garden was in the midst of some major ‘re-furb’ action.
A couple of tips
They’ve introduced a train to Kew Gardens called the ‘Kew Explorer’, for £5 you can buy a day ticket and jump on to be driven around the key points, it’s hop on and off style, but you will be strongly advised not to hop off as you might struggle to hop back on again (the train is always pretty full).
I’d say do the full lap on the train to get a general ‘feel’ of the gardens and then go back to the areas you want to spend more time in after.
If you want a hearty hot meal, head for ‘The Orangery’, this restaurant does some lovely food and cakes with plenty of seating ares.
Then walk off all those calories while you take in the Kew views!
Trees, and more trees
A well made bed…
Kew Gardens has a badger set on site, and welcomes badgers who visit in the night digging for food!
