Visit: An afternoon at Kew Gardens, with tea

The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, more colloquially known as Kew Gardens, are both a UNESCO World Heritage Site & a former Royal Estate.

It was given to the Nation in 1840 and by the start of the twentieth century the site had expanded to its current size of 300 acres. We shall have an opportunity to explore some of this during our visit and to see, too, some of the historic buildings such as the Orangery built in 1761, the Great Pagoda which was completed in the following year and the more recent Princess of Wales Centre which was completed in 1987.

At 4pm we will adjourn to "The Original Maids of Honour," a delightful retreat for a substantial tea accompanied, in true Sion style, by Prosecco for any who would like it.
