Today Gina & I visited Kew Gardens, via a cruise on the River Thames, from Westminster Pier, central London.
We started off by sailing past the Houses of Parliament, and later Lambeth, Putney, Chiswick and many other places of interest.
Kew Gardens was only about 1/2 mile from the Pier at Kew, where our boat docked.
After a quick lunch, we walked around the extensive grounds, visiting briefly the glass houses – it was a very hot day!
We then took advantage of an open sided land train, as there is simply too much to see in one day by walking.
Next, a nice cup of tea with one of the locals….
Then at the end of the afternoon, back by boat to Westminster Pier, and a walk across the bridge to the South Bank. We finished off a lovely day out with a nice evening meal, outside a restaurant overlooking the River Thames.
