We travel up the Thames to Hampton Court. The home of Henry the 8th, it is a beautiful pile. And its gardens are not too shabby either. Again our friends at the Historic Royal Palaces will this a special visit.
Later we travel back down the Thames to the famous Chelsea Physic Garden. It was here that my hero Robert Fortune was based. Can you imagine being carried around ancient China (barely understanding ANYTHING) and stealing tea plants? Today's China seems to be more than enough for me. I will go to seek inspiration from that stern Scotsman.
