Kew Gardens

Kew Palm House
The Palm House at Kew Gardens as seen through my eyes.

Both dramatic and elegant, its curvilinear structure is a classic example of Victorian design. Built between 1844 and 1848, by Richard Turner to Decimus Burton's designs. it was constructed to house tropical trees, shrubs and palms. The Palm House is world's most important surviving Victorian glass and iron structure.
