Kew Gardens is about forty minutes out of Zone 1 by tube but well worth it.
The place is huge. I didn't get to see it all, because we are talking about something like 400 acres, but I did get to see some of the best parts.
Some of those gravel circles had patterns on them, lines and concentric circles.
I hopped off the tube at Baker Street to see the Wallace Collection, which is supposed to be one of the best private collections in the city.
I spent a couple more hours there and then went to get some dinner. I have no idea how many miles I walked today, but they were quite a lot of them.
In other news, I bought a suitcase to take everything I bought back home and it is bursting at the seams. I need to stop shopping...ater tomorrow's return trip to Portobello Road.
