Kew Gardens is well organized for the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. Year-long restoration work on Kew Palace has just finished and this smallest of the royal palaces will be open to the public from 27 April. Then we have Woodland Wonders 2006 - 29 April to 1 May - a festival of country crafts that covers everything from longbows to chainsaw sculptures! The gardens are already in their Spring rainment, which is very impressive. Lastly, if you're determined to be arty and chainsaw sculptures don't appeal to you, don't forget that Cambridge Cottage, otherwise known as Kew Gardens Gallery, houses one of the world's finest collections of botanical paintings.
