VISIT REPORT

The Arts Society Arun visited Kew Gardens on 2 October 2018, a warm and mostly sunny day. The highlight of the day was a guided tour through the gardens to the newly refurbished Temperate House where our knowledgeable guide explained the work and improvements made over the 5 year period. Most of our visitors managed the Treetop Walk, a visit to the Beehive and the other memorable features.

   

Despite the distances and sometimes confusing layout, all found their way back to the coach.
