I have seen many beautiful rhododendron displays in numerous gardens but the Isabella Plantation has the most spectacular rhododendron display that I have seen anywhere. Obviously the best time to visit is in spring when they are in bloom. If you are wondering what the difference is between a rhododendron and an azalea, bear in mind that both azaleas and rhododendrons are in the genus rhododendron. If the flowers have about five stamens each you are probably looking at an azalea. If they have about ten stamens each you are likely looking at a rhododendron. If you find that confusing, blame the botanists. The Isabella Plantation is lovely to visit at any time of the year as is the rest.

We only had a short time here but it was time well spent. Admission is free but donations are welcome. The building itself is attractive. The main part of the museum is at ground level and easily accessible for the disabled. It is laid out in an interesting way and the various displays contain objects from the earliest known origins of the town onwards. There is a special gallery devoted to the work of the pioneering photographer Edweard Muybridge who hailed from here, and who was the subject of a superb exhibition at Tate Britain about three years ago. There are some paintings as you go upstairs and the large first floor room is currently given over to displays of items.

Call for Hours

Where else can you watch football at reasonable prices, get a decent pint before the match and during half time, still stand on the terraces and watch the team win and be so close to the action. This what footnall was meant to be. Long live AFC Wimbledon and their ethos of being a fan's club.
