The Royal Botanic Gardens - a must for visitors
When the sun is out (as it was on Sunday, 27th May 2012), there is no place as picturesque as the leafy South of England, Kew to be precise. All the pretty houses dotted around the place can easily transport visitors to elegant Victorian days. But nothing will prepare you for Kew gardens, a most impressive park housing all of the world plants, small, big and very big. A tree we will never forget is an ancient Lebanese Cedar who could be from a Jurassic period so big it is.
The Royal Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was founded in 1759, is one of London’s top visitor attractions and is the world leader in plant science and conservation. Their work helps to uncover the world’s plant and fungal diversity, safeguard the world's plant life and, most importantly, inspire visitors to appreciate the green world of plants and the environment they come from.
