The Xstrata Treetop Walkway and Rhizotron, Kew Gardens, Surrey
The Xstrata Treetop Walkway and Rhizotron, Kew Gardens, Surrey
The walkway is accessed either via a stairway or by a lift, which is primarily for the elderly or disabled visitor. In some ways it is not for the faint-hearted, as the part you walk is made from a kind of mesh through which you can see the ground, way below. It also moves slightly sometimes as you walk, but the views are amazing, and you are up in the tree tops where I was able to watch at close quarters a Ring Necked Parakeet devouring the buds on the trees.
