Ten events that'll impress Mum on Mother's Day


Annual Opening of Kew Palace

Kew Palace, located in the the grounds of Kew Gardens, opens its doors to the public just in time for Mother's Day. Welcoming visitors for the spring and summer every year, this distinctly Dutch-looking brick mansion set amidst the greenery of Kew Gardens is a pretty sight, yet it was in this building that George III was confined during his episodes of the mysterious and debilitating illness that is now believed to have been porphyria. Highlights of the house include the royal kitchen, which were restored last year; Queen Charlotte's Cottage, a rustic retreat hidden amidst the gardens; and Princess Elizabeth's bedroom, which she styled herself back in the 18th century.
