A Visit To The Hive @kewgardens with LW's @roquesrichard & #London Walker Victoria Wynn

Seventeen metres tall and constructed from 170,000 aluminium parts… no, it's NOT David Tucker's new hat for leading his Kensington tour (!), it's The Hive at Kew Gardens.

According to the Kew Gardens website, The Hive is… "an immersive sound and visual experience. The lights you see and the sounds you hear inside the Hive are triggered by bee activity in a real beehive at Kew.

The intensity of the sounds and light change constantly, echoing that of the real beehive. The multi award-winning Hive was inspired by scientific research into the health of honeybees. It is a visual symbol of the pollinators’ role in feeding the planet and the challenges facing bees today."

Our very own Richard III took a trip out west to visit The Hive…

…in the company of loyal London Walker Victoria Wynn. Here are a few snaps of their day out…
