Wakehurst Place

Open throughout the year, Wakehurst is the country estate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

The varied landscape is of international significance for its beautiful botanic gardens and tree collections, as well as for its science-based plant conservation and research.

A feast for the senses, Wakehurst features natural woodland and lakes, formal gardens, an Elizabethan house (five unfurnished rooms) and the 21st-century architecture of Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank.

Wakehurst Place is leased from the National Trust and is managed by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

The second image shows, to my mind at least, the beautiful and slightly surreal effects that variations in the processing can give. These are the same images – just the processing details have been changed.
