Kew Gardens Views

The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew are extensive  enough to spend an entire day there.  Admission to Kew Gardens includes the TemperatHouses,e Houses, Hot  Treetop Walkway and Kew Palace.   And here there are Flowers at Kew and Orchids at Kew

The Pagoda requires a further charge, paid at the main gate.  When I was there it was £4.  I told them that £4 was not enough they’d have to pay me at least 50 quid to go up that.

The  nearest rail station, to the main gates,  is Kew Bridge (South West Trains).  Then turn right out of the station then left over the bridge and first right to the main gates.

Orchids at Kew Gardens

Orchids in the Hot House at Kew Gardens

7 pics.  Hot house is not an overstatement and is also very humid so be prepared to carry clothing.  These are just a sample, there are also many other exotics and cacti.  Also at Kew; Kew Gardens and Kew Palace.

Hey, hey we’re the Monkeys.   It’s worth a click-on for full screen and another click to magnify.  🙂

Kew Palace

14 pics.   Kew Palace is within the grounds of Kew Gardens and entrance is included in the price of admission to the gardens.  Non-commercial photography is permitted inside the palace but without the use of flash.

The gardens and its many attractions were created by Lady Augusta following the death of her husband Prince Frederick.  She was much influenced in this endeavor by Lord Bute.  A portrait of the lady can be found further down.
