Zakkia and I are always on the hunt for good burgers, and since she'd never been to Shake Shack, it seemed an obvious place to take her! We both ordered a 'black & white' milkshake, which is vanilla with fudge brownie. It was so yummy, but definitely still not as good as the Oreo milkshake from Byron!
This guy was juggling a working chainsaw and a huge knife! I'm not sure why he was in his pants though... we didn't stay to watch long because it started to rain!
After a little trip to Mac and Zara, we got the tube to South Kensington, and from there headed to Kew Garden. To me, it felt like we'd left London. There were little bookshops, little cafes and florists, and sparse fields that reminded me a little of Parker's Piece in Cambridge. Perhaps I'm wrong, but Kew Gardens was particularly difficult to find considering how iconic it is in this area?! We kept seeing the above signs but never felt like we were getting any closer! We had to stop someone and ask them how to get there!
After a little exploring outside, we headed to the first (smaller) glass-house, which was filled with interesting cacti that were a lot more impressive than my little ones!
I thought this one looked like loads of little people holding hands!This glass house also had a tropical area which was very humid but beautiful!
We then headed to the second glass house, and as you can see from this photo from Zakkia's phone, it began to pour with rain! Lucky I'd brought an umbrella with me! Oh, England.
We climbed the swirling staircase and at the top you have a view over the entire glass house, as well as outside over some of the gardens. It was so beautiful but definitely made my legs ache a little (so unfit, sob sob). There's also a little room downstairs for marine life.
It was kind of a shame weather-wise towards the end of the day, but Zakkia and I have vowed to go back to Kew Gardens in autumn, as we hear they do special seasonal food such as pumpkin soup! Plus I think it will be beautiful to see all the different coloured leaves everywhere!
