Quirky Kew….

Kew is a leafy suburb in the South West of London.  I was there at the weekend and just happened to stumble across Kew village market, which takes place on the first Sunday of every month.  The sun was shining and there was a nice atmosphere as people strolled about and browsed the delights of the local stalls.  It felt like the countryside had been bought to the city, with fruit and vegetable stalls and bakers stands adorned with tasty looking cakes and freshly baked bread.  Other stalls I loved included the Winterbourne Game stall, full of interesting meats and the Curry Garden with lots of tasty Indian snacks.  The village itself is quaint and quirky; it’s easy to forget that you are in London!  It has a fascinating bookshop, a great delicatessen and a pub, which is right in the centre of the village by the station.  You can sit outside with a pint and watch the world go by, perfect.  Also not to be missed is Kew Gardens.  You can find the gardens just a short stroll from the village.  It has 300 acres to explore and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  With Victorian glasshouses full of unusual plants, and a treetop walkway it will keep you busy all day!

    I think a day out together in order here. We can sip and watch the world go by over a cappuccino and share our written thoughts on what we witnessed 😉 x
