The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, better known as Kew Gardens, celebrates its 250th anniversary in 2009, with a year of special events and exhibitions.

Incredibly, the world famous gardens, with its displays of exotic orchids, wildflowers from across the world and stunning garden designs, are just over one hour from the center of London.

In March over five million bulbs are used to produce the largest spring flower display in the UK, with daffodils and snowdrops nestling in woodland and a stunning carpet of crocuses.

The photograph is of the great pagoda at Kew Gardens and was taken by Philip MacKenzie.
