Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit?

The Garden Museum is housed next-door to Lambeth Palace, in the parish church of St. Mary-at-Lambeth – the burial place to Captain Bligh of Mutiny on the Bounty fame.

The courtyard has been turned into a fine 17th-century flower garden, with trees and plants from the Stewart era. The hedges are trimmed in spiralling patterns, with wild roses, daffs and hardy perennials.

The museum displays every kind of gardening tool from the dawn of time – spades, hoes and mowers – along with biographies of famous gardening figures.

Craig’s review of Greenwich Hill I climbed my first hill when I was six (six or seven, something like that). Every hill I ascended before that was either on my dad's back or in the back of a sputtering car, but then my parents took me on a fun day out to Box Hill which turned out to be not so much fun. I only had little legs, little feet, a pair of flimsy plimsoles, and when I got to the top there was nothing to se… continued
Craig’s review of Victoria Embankment Gardens There's a solid fog this morning. I was going to take some photos but I'd need a blow torch to clear it, so I've decided to mope around Victoria Embankment Gardens for a bit. I love this little park. It might even be my favourite park in London. I don't know why, because it's nothing special -- it's just a nice little place to walk through instead of pinballing past the people on t… continued
