Explore different areas of London: Kew Gardens and St Martin-in-the-Fields
London offers many tourist attractions to the visitors; a City Break to this beautiful place will not allow you to enjoy the most of the Capital so you will have to be very selective; this is why I have prepared a Top 10 Places to Visit in London tourist guide. However, if you are planning to stay for a longer period of time, do not limit yourself just to the most popular attractions and landmarks. Dare to explore different areas of the most exciting capital city in Europe: A visit to Kew Gardens is a delight; this beautiful garden is a spectacular city oasis located just 30 minutes from the City Centre.
Although the main objective of this World Heritage Site is conservation and research; you will have plenty to do: if you are not interested in gardens or plants you can give it a go to the Rhizotron & Xstrata Treetop Walkway, but I have to warn you: don’t go anywhere near if you suffer from acrophobia as this walkway is 18 meters tall; however, it offers spectacular views of the Garden. Other places you will enjoy are: Kew Palace, the Pagoda and the many Conservatories. Kew Gardens is located in Richmond, TW9 3AG; the nearest tube station is Kew Garden Stations and the nearest train station is Kew Bridge Station and Richmond Station. The Garden opens every day.
Another place that you should visit is St Martin-in-the-Fields, a very Stylish Anglican Church situated at the north-east of Trafalgar Square; this is in fact the oldest surviving landmark on Trafalgar Square. You might be lucky and enjoy lunch while listening to a concert for free (Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 1pm); do not forget to visit the impressive Café in the Crypt (the entrance is via a small building to the right of St Martin-in-the-Fields).
