Kew Gardens – Chihuly

There is currently an exhibition on at Kew Gardens which runs until the end of October. I hope you get to see it because it is stunning! Chihuly - Reflections on nature - are iconic artworks in an inspiring setting. But if you don’t make it, there will be other great exhibitions. Even without a special show, visiting Kew Gardens is a fantastic day out.

The Exhibition

You can have a guided tour or pick up a trail guide just for families. We picked up a map of where each artwork was situated and walked around all of them.

We had got to Kew Gardens quite late in the day and only had two hours before it closed. It was just enough.

We loved all the artworks but my favourites were Sapphire Star, Summer Sun and Niijima Floats.   

Kew Gardens - Chihuly - "Sapphire Star", 2010.
Kew Gardens - Chihuly - "Summer Sun", 2010.
Kew Gardens - Chihuly - "NIIJIMA FLOATS", 1992 - 2008

Eating out in Richmond

We were too late to have tea at Kew, so we caught the bus into Richmond. It was a very hot day so a cuppa by the river was just the job! We sat under the shade of enormous trees drinking tea and watching the world go by. Very relaxing! I’d recommend Tide Tables’ cakes too!

There are loads of places to eat in Richmond. That night we ate at Cote Brasserie - affordable and delicious, what more could we ask for!

Have you been to Kew recently? If you have we’d love to hear what you thought of the exhibition. Get in touch via Twitter or Facebook as usual.
