I was dropping off the car (read the full story here) in Kew Bridge and since I was far away from home, I thought I may as well make the most of the day and visit Kew Gardens that was nearby! Luckily I brought my Nikon F4 and the weather was perfect – it wasn’t too hot or too cold. But after the busy weekend in New Forest, I was exhausted and didn’t cover everything so I am definitely coming back again one day, bringing Aneurin with me!

I started from Elizabeth Gate and ended at Lion Gate. Throughout the visit, I went to Nash Conservatory area and then Kew Palace. Beautiful Queen’s Garden was right next to it with so many flowers to admire at. There were signs next to every foliage explaining what it was called and what it was used for. It was interesting to learn something new but sadly I have forgotten them already! No wonder I was terrible at exams.
The last thing I visited was Palm House. Naturally it was humid inside and I was dripping at the end! It were full of exotic plants and giant trees, which were all gorgeous. I will be sharing photos in the next post as I almost shot the whole film roll just in Palm House! I was going to see Temperate House too but it was covered with boards and it turned out that it was closed for restoration. Hopefully it will be available to look around when I come back!
It is a beautiful place to visit in London and it was worth the money (pricey £14 for concession! I think it costs £15 for adult standard). Have you visited Kew Gardens and which part have you seen?
