Kew Gardens:
The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a world-famous centre for botanical knowledge enclosed in London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage site offering unique landscapes and iconic architecture.

The gardens are home to the largest, and most diverse, collection of living plants in the world, growing throughout the 121 hectares of garden and inside the stunning collection of listed glasshouses.  Below are two galleries from a day in the burning London sunshine in June.  The first gallery looks at the flora and the second at the architecture of the various attractions, including the recently restored Grade I listed Temperate House by Decimus Burton from c.1863.
