Just when we thought we'd covered most of Richmond Park, today we ventured further to find Isabella Plantation and discovered a whole lot more park as well. Isabella Plantation was another garden hideaway mentioned in my Quiet London book so I've been wanting to go for a while.
Striking colours as far as the eye could see confirmed that today was a great day to visit. 40 acres of woodland garden full of azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias and the occasional pond, it is so pretty and just wow.
With the flowers all in full bloom, hollow tree stumps aplenty and stepping stones across tiny streams, it truly felt like the sort of fairy kingdom described in great detail in children's books.
