London has got some beautiful parks and gardens but one of the best green spaces has to be the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew.
Apart from having nearly every plant and tree in the world it has got some architectural gems. The Kew Palace, built in the 17th century by a Dutch merchant, Samuel Fortrey, has got a very distinct Flemish look as you might expect. The palace was inhabited by King George III and his large family until his insanity put him out of public life. Another building belonging to the royal family is Queen Charlotte’s Cottage – a small house that served her as a picnic space
A new addition is the Rhizotron and Xstrata Treetop walkway. The 18 meter high track lets you study the the worlds most amazing trees from a whole new angle.
