Via New Covent Garden Market in their new home, which was a revelation and another visit is on the cards for
that and I will post photos on that one then, but on what must have been the hottest day of the year so far we arrived in the afternoon to view Chelsea Physic Garden.
Deciding to take on the offer of a free tour, we were guided through these most amazing gardens by the lovely
Alison, where we gently meandered the beautiful and in some cases quite poisonous - who knew - areas that
make up Chelsea Physic Gardens. All I can say is that it is worth a visit and in fact you can buy a season ticket which one gentleman was doing as he was staying in London for a month nearby and wanted to enjoy the gardens during his stay. There is a lovely area to enjoy a picnic and the obligatory tea room and shop, which sells the Chelsea Physic Garden honey as they have their own hives. Truly inspirational.
On the way out visit their garden centre - well it would be rude not too! We came away with some of the plants we had fallen in love with during our visit. Everyone was very helpful and answered all our questions about varieties - one of which was not available at the time, but they could get this in for me by next week. I only wish I lived nearer, but I would need a bigger garden.
We will re-visit this beautiful place in the Spring.
