At Kew Palace with Lesley and the attaction’s costumed interpreters.

I had a lovely day out at Kew Palace at the end of May, thanks to Lesley Terrell, Sales Executive at Historic Royal Palaces, who suggested I came as I’d never been before, or even to Kew Gardens where it is situated. It gave me the perfect opportunity to discover both. Despite a heavy downpour on my way in, the weather soon cleared up and I was able to enjoy the stunning landscape at the gardens from the Kew Explorer train and via the treetop walkway, before taking a look inside the former home of George III. The property has been meticulously restored and parts of the structure have been left as they were discovered to give an insight into what went into the conservation process. For an extra special evening, exclusive Georgian dinners have been introduced that give the chance to eat in the King’s Dining Room; although for a limited number of people, it would be worth contacting the attraction to see if the idea could be adapted for your group.
