Hidden little gem, didn't know of this place at all before I happened to stumble over some information about their open day online. Well worth going, it costs only 5 pounds and it's all donated to charity. Nicely set up with food stalls (the money...More

This has been on the list for a while ever since reading that the current A of C opens the Gardens and parts of the Palace on the first Friday of each Month - which rather begs the question why as little as that. It...More

I joined an organised tour of the buildings and gardens - one might almost say secret gardens, though they do open regularly - on the bank of the Thames just opposite the Houses of Parliament. The expert guide made light work of a succession of...More
