London’s second oldest botanic garden played host to a group of our residents when they enjoyed a trip to Fulham Palace Gardens.
Attached to Fulham Palace, home to the Bishops of London for more than 1,300 years, the gardens are a 13 acre oasis in suburban London.
There was plenty to see, smell and touch which made for an all-round sensory experience. As well as the traditional planted flower beds, the site offers a walled garden, knot garden, kitchen garden and vinery.
The group also took time to stop off at the celebrated holm oak which has stood in the garden for over 500 years.
All agreed the gardens offered a peaceful sanctuary with much to enjoy and a prompt for some happy memories.
