Visible from many parts of Kew Gardens, we were drawn to the Great Pagoda, sparkling in the spring sunshine. Unfortunately (annoyingly) it wasn't open which was very disappointing as we would have loved to see the inside.

You see photos and think you know what to expect, You walk through the gardens towards it and think you know what to expect. Only once you are there can you truly take in the size & magnificence of the pagoda.
