We depart Plymouth at 7am and make a coffee stop on our way to London for our afternoon visit to Kew Gardens & Kew Palace. Visit the Palm House and the Rose Garden; the Palm House was constructed in 1844 and took 4 years to complete and has become the gardens icon. Climb the 18 metre staircase to a walkway constructed high up among the tree tops. Kew Palace re-opened to the public in 2006 after a huge restoration, it is said to be the smallest of the English Royal Palaces and a favourite retreat for the Royals in the late 18th century. We then travel the short distance onto our hotel to check in and you will have an evening meal.
