Area: London

Date of walk: 1st and 2nd June 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 6 miles

After arriving at Kings Cross, we made our way across London and arrived at Kew Gardens just after lunch. We spent 4 hours or so walking around the gardens, which comprise over 300 acres, and are a paradise for anyone interested in gardens and plants. We barely scraped the surface and wished we’d had more time to spend

Inspired by what we’d seen, we decided to visit another of London’s gardens the next day – Chelsea Physic Garden. We cycled there on ‘Boris Bikes’, which was great fun!

The Physic Garden is much smaller than Kew, but this gives it an intimate atmosphere and we enjoyed our visit just as much

We’ve been to these gardens before and will return again – they are both fantastic in different ways, and there’s always something new to be seen
