A few weeks ago we visited the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. The gardens cover 300 acres and are home to over 40,000 plants, 40 listed buildings and a wealth of unique history. The autumn colours this year are the best I have seen for ages.
Kew is right on the Heathrow flight path
We visited the Victorian Palm House, with its wrought iron spiral stair case which leads to a viewing gallery.
The orchids in the Princess of Wales Conservatory were stunningly beautiful.
If you get the opportunity do go and visit, you will not see it all in a day, it takes forty minutes to walk the length of the garden but you can view it all from the Kew Explorer
