This week we went to London for a visit to Kew Gardens. During our hours there, we saw about one third of this magnificent park that was founded in 1840. If you are planning a visit, and have limited time, be sure to do some research so you get to the areas that most interest you.
Kew Gardens is located in Richmond Surrey, about 30 minutes from Central London. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it contains the most diverse living plant collection in the world. Kew’s collections have more than 30,000 living plants, and the facility houses the largest herbarium in the world.
We hope you enjoy the photos from the four sections of Kew Gardens that we visited:
- The Palm House (considered the world’s most important surviving Victorian glass and iron structure)
- The grounds
- The Princess of Wales Conservatory
- A temporary installation called ‘The Hive’, a unique multi sensory experience, designed to highlight the extraordinary life of bees.
