One of the best things about living in London is that you are never too far away from a secret garden. Luckily most of these are not private but are open to the public. Here is a list of 10 that I love.
I recently discovered Hampstead heath park. Not that anyone was hiding it from me, but without the buzz on the internet and it’s omittance in London guides I thought that it is just a boring piece of land in zone 3. I was terribly wrong. It is more than just a park it is actually a bit of countryside in the city, with over 55 historical features, archaeological sites and monuments.
My previous post was getting a bit too long, but I still had so many marvelous photographs of Kew gardens, so I decided to go for part 2. I just can’t keep all this goodness to myself.
When you think about botanical gardens in the UK I bet that the first thing to come to mind is Kew gardens. Let me know if something else pops into your head first.
We have a lot to look at when it comes to Kew so lets get on with it. The gardens have so many lovely specimens and such an interesting history, that I am sure I would still be writing about them in a few years time. Kew garden is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, in addition to this it played a significant role in the world of Botanics.
Chelsea Physic Garden is an excellent place to start my journey of finding the best botanical spots in UK. I will visit the best parks and gardens of London and UK and share my experiences and tips with you.
