It may be a part of the capital city, but the borough of Kew is a world away from the hustle and bustle of central London, and its hard to believe it's only a short distance from the centre. Kew is home to one of the world's largest botanical gardens – the 326 acre site has over 40,000 collections of plant and flower species and buildings which hold historical importance. However, if plants arent your thing, there's plenty more to do. You could picnic with the deer at Richmond Park, head to independent boutiques and gastro-pubs for a bite, walk by the river, or even spend time at the World Rugby Museum.
