We have tickets for Kew Gardens and it opens at 10am. We arrived at the Lion Gate Entrance at 9.52am and wait impatiently for it to open.
They are having a Japanese festival and we went straight to one of the biggest glass houses to see the beautiful plants, and a giant artwork called One Thousand Springs. It is made of 5,000 red threads hung from the ceiling and 1,000 paper notes covered in Japanese writing celebrating the Autumn season.
We then went to the Treetop Walkway which has been closed on our previous visits. I wasn't expecting it to be very high, but actually it was enormous.
