Kew Gardens and Hampton Court

We saw so much today. With Grandma Rachel went on the train to London, met up with Grandpa and Ann and headed to Kew Gardens. Kew Gardens is more than 300 acres of land all planted with beautiful flower and trees. There was even a carpet of English Bluebells where you could walk through on a little path. Their beautiful violet-blue-purpley color was pretty against the green grass. We had lunch there and then I rode in a flowered London taxi with my Mom to Hampton Court.

At Hampton Court, the first thing we did was try out the maze. Michael got lost a couple of times, but I made it through the first time following my Dad. The hedges were dense and they had put little speakers in the hedge with lines from Alice in Wonderland about the maze in the story. The most beautiful thing about the flowers at Hampton Court were all of the daffodils. They were everywhere, almost an endless carpet of all different colors. It was amazing.

We then visited the buildings and Dad and I first checked out Queen’s Apartments. They were small but beautifully furnished. Then we saw the King’s Apartments. They were much bigger. He even had two bedrooms and a velvet seat on the toilet in his bathroom. The king had a guards chamber with guns and weapons beautifully displayed in patterns on the wall. There were more than 2,800 different weapons. After that we went through the Tudor Kitchen area where they were preparing food in the way that they would have in Tudor times. I had some bread which was plain but good. Then we said goodbye to Grandpa and Ann and headed back to Bromley!
