Palm House, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London Borough of Richmond upon Thames
This photo shows the Palm House of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, usually referred to simply as Kew Gardens, which are extensive gardens and botanical glasshouses between Richmond and Kew in southwest London, England.
The Palm House was built by architect Decimus Burton and iron-maker Richard Turner between 1844 and 1848, and was the first large-scale structural use of wrought iron. The structure's panes of glass are all hand-blown.
