In the long, long ago (last year) I went for an outing to the lovely Kew Gardens in London and spent an enjoyable afternoon walking the paths and fields.

On arrival to the gardens (which have an entry fee – £13.90 adult) the main gate had quite a line of families so I took a 5 minute detour to the side entrance and almost immediate entry. Top tip!

There’s plenty of nature to immerse yourself in, with turf lawns, flower beds, woodlands, water features and different climate zones to see flora from other environments.

Kew also features a pagoda, tree top walk and several historic buildings and museums. The first two may be closed on your visit as they were for me.

If you like nature (or even if it’s only of passable interest) a trip to Kew is well worth it. Lastly if you time it right try and get a boat there and/or back. Again another thing I missed out on.
