It's logs of fun
We have visited Kew Gardens as a family several times before but had never got to the new log trail. So, on a flying visit to the botanical gardens after my husband had competed in a race there, we set out to find it.

The log trail is located towards the back, beyond the tree-top walkway and near the big lake. It was easy enough to find by searching on my phone.

My two girls loved it!

It goes on for ages - looping back round so that it ends near the beginning - and needless to say, we went round more than once!

As we were there very early on a race day, we had the trail completely to ourselves - I dare say that's not normally the case though.

There were steps carved into a lot of the logs and even the odd animal!

It had been a bit rainy on the day we were there and the logs were very slippery, so our youngest needed a helping hand.

Kew Gardens covers such a huge area, with so many different things to see and do, that there's no way you could see it all in just one visit. However, if you're there with children then the log trail is definitely worth making a bee-line for (as well as the fantastic Children's Garden of course).

For more information about what Kew Gardens has to offer and to book tickets, visit the website. The nearest underground station (Kew Gardens on the District Line) is a short walk away, or there is ample parking in the visitor carpark.
