Always enjoy a visit to Kew in any season it’s years since we visited and on this warm Sunday in mid-October it was pretty busy. The main reason we visited was to catch up with a friend who was exhibiting at the Handmade at Kew show of art and crafts etc. so our ticket included entry for that too. After a wander around the gardens and going up the tree-top walk, which is definitely worth a visit we had a quick mid-day bite to eat from the café sort of food outlet within the gardens. This place seems to cater for the family market, and has a gift shop attached. We just had a sandwich and a roll and some crisps each and the food was fine and a pretty much OK price but the price of around £

I recently visited the museum as part of a guided tour around Twickenham Stadium (highly recommendable! A must-see for everyone interested in rugby!). It is situated on the grounds of Twickenham Stadium. The museum is a lovely arrangement of memorabilia, history and hands-on parts: old, very old rugby caps, ticket stubs, rugby jerseys, replicas of the Webb Ellis Cup and other trophies, some nicely arranged films, a whole sequence of live action areas to determine your personal position in the team if you were a rugby player (a scrum simulator, a point where to kick a (digital) ball, and many more, timelines - basically everything there is to learn about this beautiful sport.

The museum is hidden away on the top floor of the old town hall, but is well worth seeking out.. Well displayed and not presented at 'lowest common denominator' as are so many museums today! There is a small temporary exhibition but also a really good permanent collection on display. Really interesting artefacts that tell the story of Richmond from earliest medieval times to the present day They also have an app which takes you on an excellent and very enjoyable audio tour, lasting about 40 minutes, of one of the historic streets nearby (the subject of their present temporary exhibition but they are going to keep the tour even after the exhibition finishes).
