Gardens – Autumn Colour at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew – tour with former employee

Event Details

Due to an anticipated high demand and to ensure attendees get the most from the visit, numbers are restricted. If you are unable to book a place, please let me know if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

Join me on a trip down memory lane as I wander around one of the world's most famous botanic gardens. See the Autumn Colour around the Gardens and see the garden start to bed down for winter. Revisiting the places I trained in for three years 20 years ago, we will see a range of garden features includng one of the worlds largest rock gardens, modern & Victorian glasshouses with some of rarest plants on earth. This 260+ year old, 300 acre garden also has lots of iconic buildings and history attached to it. The botanical paintings of Marriane North are a must for art lovers. The Treetop Walkway gives a birds eye view of the arboreteum. We will pass several other features also, too numerous to mention. For more details about the Garden, visit:
