Stroll among the treetops at Kew Gardens
Published: Sunday 25th of May 2008
Visitors to Kew Gardens will be able to walk among the treetops and enjoy new aerial views of their favourite arboreal specimens.
A walkway, 18m (59ft) high and 200m (656ft) long has been unveiled at the world-famous London attraction, according to the BBC.
The feature, which was designed by Marks Barfield Architects, allows visitors to walk through the canopy of deciduous oaks, limes and sweet chestnuts, where they can get up close to the wildlife and plant life that live upon them.
Project manager Tony Kirkham said: "As a trained arborist I have had the privilege of being up in the tree canopy, experiencing trees at height and birds and other wildlife from a completely different perspective."
He added: "It's fantastic that we are able to give visitors the same experience."
Opened in 1840, the garden park grows more species of flowers in its 121 hectares that any other garden in the world.
