Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Last weekend was Heritage Open Weekend, this weekend it’s Open House London. Similar in concept, but whereas the former is organised by English Heritage the capitals event is supported by Open-City.

We’d planned on joining up with an organised tour of Kew Gardens, but, as this was fully booked by the time I got round to calling, we organised one of our very own and a thoroughly enjoyable time was had.

The ministering angel of domestic bliss had visited the gardens before but this was my first visit and it was well worth giving up my Town v Cardiff City ticket for.

Here are a few pictures of the gardens architectural highlights …
