TW9 - Kew Gardens

I know, Kew isn’t  a SW postcode, I have been cheating a little bit here.

It is still part of London though and it is geographically South West - It has to be included into the South London wonders list.

Those victorian greenhouses are something indescribable. The light was just magical.. 

Kew Gardens, TW9

“The thing is, I push the button, and by the time I get my hands underneath, it’s gone!”

I’m idly observing the sharp green corners ofButcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) planted outside - before I’ve even set foot in the toilets at Kew Gardens, I’ve already heard the exit poll rumours. Inside, it’s loud. It is a Sunday. There are lots of children. Mothers who aren’t sure if their boys are really maybe a bit too old to be in here look shyly at the tile and root about in their bags for nothing at all. And the toilets are a bit whiffy, truth be told.

The toilets have a tide! I stand and watch as the water level in the bowl rises and then falls, up and down; it’s almost breathing, almost alive. Is this legal? What does it mean?

Interesting column for dispensing the TP, and that old issue of replacement toilet seats that don’t give full coverage of the lip of the bowl.

The rumours were right. No sooner have you pushed down on the tap, the flow has stopped. It is like being at school, and not in a good way. In the event you do manage get your hands wet, here we have both a Dyson Airblade and a generic hand dryer. I use the Airblade first, and then dry the trademark ‘bracelet’ of wet skin the Airblade can’t reach on the other unit. It’s nice to be leaving.
