The Londoner: Princess of Wales Conservatory

I may have started working on other projects, but i'm still keeping my commitment to this one. London is such a beautiful city filled with many beautiful spaces and I'm still going to back track and tell you about my favorite ones. As many of you may have noticed, I'm always taking pictures in greenhouses and that's because I'm always at Kew Gardens. 

Now Kew Gardens is home to many temperature houses but I decided to focus my post on the Princess of Wales Conservatory because it's my favorite one and the first one I gravitate to when I enter the Garden.

The Princess of Wales Conservatory is home to a variety of plant life and a variety of temperature zones. Off the top of my head i think it's about 8 Zones in total. This space is the closest I get to home in the Giant Architectural Jungle that is London. The plants in many of the temperature zones are the same plants that grow in my yard at home and on the road side. The humidity in the air and the smell of the soil also gives me that homie feel. 

Getting to Kew Gardens isn't long for me. I can get the 65 bus near my house in Brentford and go a few stops down the Kew Green and boom I'm at the entry. If you're not as near as me, You can get a South Western Train (Network Rail) from Waterloo which is stopping at Kew Bridge, get out and walk to the entrance. You can also get to Kew Bridge on the district line. 

Entry isn't bad if you're a student but you can always check the prices on Kew.org

As usual, here's a flurry of photos that I've taken in the conservatory.
