After what seems like the longest Winter in forever, Spring may finally be on its way this Sunday, as temperatures are set to reach a magnificent 18C. Glorious sunshine is forecast throughout the Capital, so it’s time to dust off those sunglasses and head out on one last family day trip before the kids return back to school on Monday.
So, where can we go that’s reasonably priced I hear you ask! Well, take a look at our recommendation below:
Visit Kew Gardens and gain entry to Kew Palace for FREE
The spectacular Royal Botanic Gardens are the perfect place to take the family. Set in 300 acres and surrounded by 250 years of history, the world’s most famous garden has treats for everyone. For Mum and Dad, take a wander around The Princess of Wales Conservatory where you can see an abundance of tropical blooms. For the kids, try and spot the Badgers located within a labyrinth of tunnels, close to the Wildlife Observation Centre. The gardens also operate the ‘Kew Explorer’, a hop-on, hop-off train which is perfect for those weary feet.
Then, once you’ve had lunch and recovered from all that walking, head to Kew Palace and gain FREE entry to where George III, Queen Charlotte and their 15 children liked to spend their summers.
The ‘top’ things to see and do are:
- The Royal Kitchens
- Queen Charlotte’s Cottage
- Madame Tussaud’s bust of George III
- Princesses’ bedrooms
- Queen Charlotte’s Chair
- People’s library
