Walking amoungst the birds
Enjoy doing something a bit different? Enjoy walking?
Well now you can actually really do both at Kew Gardens- which opened an elevated walkway through the trees, which is 18m high and 200m long.
Created by Mark Barfields Architects (who created the London Eye), who were inspired by nature to have its design blend in with its natural surroundings.
More about the experience
Visitors will have a birds eye view of Kew, and will have the opportunity to discover the biodiversity of the forest. The Royal Botanical garden itself is internationally respected for its outstanding collection of plants, as well as its focus on sustainable development and conservation. Therefore, being able to view such a place from a Bird's eye is truly a treat.
One would not expect such a place to be so close to London, it is undoubtably too much of a hidden gem. If you are feeling a little bit sick of the city life, a visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens is definitely in order, and this treetop walkway is a definite plus.
Opens at 10am everyday and the Treetop Walkway closes at 5pm.
