Kew Gardens

The Kew Gardens are London’s largest UNESCO world heritage site. With over 326 acres of land, it is home to over 40,000 species of plants. This was a perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon…

The Palm House was built in 1844. At the time, no glass buildings of this size had ever been constructed so the architect borrowed techniques from ship building, which explains why the building looks like an inverted ship’s hull.

Princess of Wales Conservatory

Opened in 1987 by Diana, Princess of Wales, this building contains different climates from Desert to tropical. You can also find a few tropical animal friends- I especially liked the Poison Dart Frog…
