Headline and Text
It is Britain's longest river. It is 354 km long. It rises at an altitude of 610 m on Plynlimon, in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales. It then flows through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with the county towns of Shrewsbury, Worcester and Gloucester on its banks and flows to the Bristol Chanel. The Severn Bridge, which crosses the river and connects England with Wales, is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world.
It is one of the most beautiful places to visit in London. Its official name is the Royal Botanic Gardens and it was once part of a royal estate.
Lord Henry Capell, later the 1st Baron Capell of Tewkesbury, started the plant collection in the 1600s and today there are over 40,000 different kinds of plants at Kew Gardens. There are three museums with amazing collections of rare and beautiful flowers and plants, as well as an exhibition which tells the story of the evolution of plants.
There is so much to see and the gardens are so large that it is easy for visitors to get lost. Luckily, the pagoda – a tall, Chinese-style building – acts as landmark for those exploring the gardens. If you love plants and flowers, Kew Gardens is the perfect place to visit.
It is the highest mountain in the British Isles, the summit is 1,345 metres above sea level. Ben Nevis stands in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William.
The mountain is a popular destination, attracting more than 100,000 visitors per year. The summit is the collapsed dome of an ancient volcano. There is the ruins of an observatory which was continuously staffed between 1883 and 1904.
If you fit enough and you like climbing or mountaineering, it is a perfect place for you to visit.
