Which Gardens

by novsco61

2 weeks ago I was watching Pilot Guides on TV and it was about London. I can't remember which is the garden where there is a labyrinth of bushes and you have to find the center ?

I also want to know which gardens should I visit with my 8-year-old daughter - Botanical Gardens in Kew or Kensington Gardens ?

Are you thinking of Hampton Court?

Re: Re: Which Gardens

Sounds like the Maze at Hampton Court. You can get there via overland trains from Waterloo - takes about half an hour.
I strongly recommend Kew Gardens - take the District Line from central London to Kew.
Also try the Barnes Wetland Centre: http://www.wwt.org.uk/visit/wetlandcentre/
Again, trains from Waterloo, about 15 minutes.

Visit The Kew Gardens.

You should also visit Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.

Ciao!

Hello:
For a truly huge exhibition, you should visit the Kew Gardens. Kensington is a lovely green park, but the 'gardens' as such consist of a few rather largish flower beds and a green 'courtyard'. Pretty, but not outstanding. In fact, the gardens up at Regent's Park are nicer, in my opinion.

For a great day out with a child, you can visit Hampton Court by boat that gies from Embankment. Also, much depends onthe child in question. Kew is a fantastic garden with lots of variety. Kensington Gardens however, have very strong associations with Peter Pan... which lots of kids love... but they can be visited quickly and easily from central London.

Re: Re: Which Gardens

Thanks again to all of you. I have 7 days in London and I hope there will be enough time to visit all the attractions.

Kew is definitely the better garden for the keen gardener with a fantastic range of plants from all over the world.

Kensington Gardens is still worth a visit, it is centrally located and has a great Children's park built in memory of Princess Diana which any 8 year old is likely to enjoy.

Re: Which Gardens

Hampton Court maze is probably what you saw. Kew is wonderful. If you are going there, might as well go to Richmond-Upon-Thames and go by the river. If you want to venture into Kent, there are lovely gardens created by Vita Sackville West. I like Sissinghurst the best. Your 8 year old might even like the different garden "rooms" Vita created. There is a tour you can take which picks up at Victoria. Sorry I can'r recall the name right now but you can certainly do a google or altavista search and find it. Kensington Gardens is very accessible. Go on the "lake" and row watching the swans with your child. Holland Park is also a fine place and it is not so far from Kensington Gardens.

Travel Tips for London

Go to Hyde Park. That's a...

by Cutypie

Go to Hyde Park. That's a lovely park, so huge, in the middle of busy city. I could just walk around there and let my thoughts fly. Very relaxing place. People just walked around, sat on the benches, kids were running and as did dogs, which played in the green grass. Am gonna miss that park. The most I will miss Hyde Park. What else... umm.... polite people! And those funny whistler guys who put a smile on my face. (Finnish guys just don't do it)

WEBSITE: thegumtree.com

http://thegumtree.com

Very similar to craigslist in New York or dailyinfo.co.uk in Oxford, thegumtree.com website is a go-to information site for flat rentals (long term or short term), sales, personal ads, services, jobs and other community related information. Their flat and job listings are particularly helpful. You can search flats by location and duration and jobs by field.

thegumtree is not limited to just London, but to all of England, Scotland, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Westminster Bridge

by irisbe

Westminster Brigde

For many centuries, the only crossing in Central London was London Bridge.
Many attempts to get authorization for building a bridge at Westminster were denied by the city council.
Finally in 1734 Charles Labelye, a Suisse, could present a plan that got their approval. 1736 the Earl of Pembroke and his “crew” granted the act. However raising funds to finance this construction was still a kind of an obstacle. No problem however as they combined pleasure with need and held a lottery to gain money. It would result in the nickname given “The Bridge of Fools”.

The works started in 1739. A lot of misfortune happened during the construction: financial problems, wars, sabotage, accidents, construction failures causing some stones fell down from one of the arcs, even a small earthquake happened to occur! Ten years later the bridge got finished and opened in 1750. However the Earl of Pembroke died just small time before and was not able to “enjoy” the inauguration. Labelye, tired after this decade of worries, retired and went to the South of France. He died there in 1781.
The 1.038 feet long and 44 ft wide bridge was never really stable and trusted, in time the foundations were so damaged that it became dangerous. James Walker (was that Johnny’s little brother? Joke!) started a 10 year long reconstruction. Together with Charles Barry, Thomas Page and George Rennie, he submitted a plan for a replacement bridge.
The new bridge became 827 ft long and 84 ft wide and opened in 1862, after 8 years of construction. Attention was given to the meaning of the colour in which the bridge got painted. It was painted green along the Common Benches of the House of Parliament, whilst the Lambeth bridge got red paint referring to the benches of the Lord’s.

Now that there was made a new trustful passage to the other side, the South Bank lied open for development. Leisure tip: You can embank at the Westminster Pier.

Flowers and Kindness of English People

by Manyana

Two-minute silence, flowers, and respect are a common local costum among Londoners, showing gratitute and sympathy in memory of the beloved or who gave their lives for love or patriotism.

After the 7-July attack, squares and parks have been filled with flower tribunes and letters of love and sympathy. It was a touchy scene to see love grow and nourish.

I never felt discriminated as media might show, in contrast, i feel like home.In general, Britons are very generous in spirit. They always show a goodwill to help and lend a hand whenever it is possible. They always say, 'thank you' and 'sorry' and give a genuine smile:^)

Extra things in your luggage

by ginte

Good shoes, umbrella or jacket needed as it often rains. And it doesn't matter on which period of the year you're going to London - take a T-shirt, sweater and a jacket cause sometimes it's not so warm even in the summer. Don't forget your photo camera!:)
