Recently wanting to see something different on a sunny day I was told about the Kew gardens at Kew (District Line). Its easily accessible by the underground and after a whooping ticket price of £13.50 I was admitted in. I was quite hesitant thinking that I am going to get bored at seeing greenhouses and plants but I was so wrong. The whole place is like a huge park filled with vibrant life especially on a sunny day.

I was on the tube a couple of years ago and a couple of American tourists were chatting about their day. One had been to Kew Gardens. 'Is it good?' asked the other.

Kew Gardens, in west London, are probably the best and most famous botanical gardens in the world and the model on which many others are based. There are several interesting buildings including a royal palace and large glasshouses ranging from a few years old to several hundred years housing tropical plants and even the world's oldest pot-plant, which lives in the Palm-House. Outside there are plants and trees from all over the world. There are indoor and outdoor restaurants including one in the Orangery, another historic building in the park. Kew Gardens is also used as a venue for summer concerts, including Jools Holland who frequently plays there. The main ... Read the complete review
