While I only had one destination today, I think I walked about the same amount I did yesterday with my Friday jaunt throughout London. Today I took “the tube” (underground rail system) out to the Royal Botanic Gardens – Kew and spent the entire day exploring 300 acres with plant collections, museums, educational displays, etc. This is a very well known garden worldwide that is strong in research, plant preservation and also houses the Millennium Seed Bank. There are also some very old and large tree specimens there! The weather was cool and overcast but perfect for photography. I went in right at opening (10 am) and made sure I made it through the entire gardens. It was amazing and I found the grounds very well kept up and the labeling was excellent as well. I probably could spend a second day there as well. Oddly enough, I ran in to Jonny, one of the Great Dixter gardeners there today too! It was nice to see so many children and families enjoying the garden too as I think this is certainly a main attraction in the London area.
