Autumn. I bloomin’ love it. I know I’ve mentioned that before.
I love the changing leaves. Apparently I love travelling into central London to see some changing of the leaves. Because last Monday that’s what we did, and it was such a lovely afternoon, wandering around Kew gardens.
The Hive was pretty cool. I imagine it is at it’s best when the meadow flowers are in bloom.
Some things to note:
Take the free map, you will need it, it’s a big old space, with lots of different areas to explore.
The amazing Evolution House is currently closed for a massive restoration project and will remain closed until 2018. It is the largest surviving victorian glasshouse and the restoration project (if completed on time) will take five years in total. It was a shame not be able to look around this awesome building but I guess we will just have to go back.
You can picnic here. You do not need to buy lunch on site. We didn’t plan ahead and spent over £20 on some sandwich and drinks. Learn from my mistake folks.
I’d love to visit again in spring to see the blooms start. If you get the chance I’d totally recommend a wander around, there are loads of details about how, when, where and how much on the Kew website.
Do you have any recommendation for UK spots I should check out? Are you a garden wanderer or a national trust fan?
