London is first of all tradition, culture and history.
Royal Botanic gardens, Kew — Botanical complex of gardens and greenhouses in South-West London, founded in 1759 (in 2009 celebrated the 250th anniversary from the date of their Foundation).
This internationally recognized Botanical research center, and one of the world’s largest collections of living plants, and being in the world heritage list of UNESCO.
But today we will talk about illumination. For Christmas and New year, the Royal Botanic gardens Kew magically transformed with the help of 60 000 led lights and a kilometer-long trail leads visitors past the glowing trees and luminous bee hives…
This is the beehive, which pulses in the night sky thanks to the 1000 led.
And this is the one kilometre light trail.
On ordinary days, the Royal Botanic gardens, Kew is, without exaggeration, the most beautiful Park in London. He is rightfully proud of its collection of living plants, which is among the three largest collections in the world. Kew gardens lies on the South Bank of the Thames, the Park covers more than 120 hectares.
More than 30 thousand plants grow in the gardens, and one of the largest herbariums in the world includes 7 million samples. The library contains more than 750 thousand volumes and more than 175 thousand drawings of plants.
It’s all Christmas illuminations.
Here and in the main picture — the Palm house with lights. It’s a greenhouse of glass and wrought iron. In 1958, in front of the Palm house (East side) is 10 statues of animals, made of Portland stone.
