Kew gardens - Chocolate tour


This is a chocolate tour of Kew gardens by Kew gardens guide exclusively for our group.

A bit about the tour as provided by Kew gardens:
Cacao (we have two trees on site), vanilla, oranges, Mint, chilies, sugar, carob (a cocoa substitute). Also stories about pollination, conservation, genetic diversity and its imp

ortance in crop protection for cacao tree.

The price of the tour is £50 for our group and it's excluding the admission to Kew gardens, which can be found on their website, you can get it for 50% of with the 2 for 1 offer if you travel by train and have a

paper National Rail ticket, check here. I'll collect £2 deposit paid by PayPal (£1 going towards the group admin) and depends on the number of people attending the event you pay the difference on the day, but it wouldn't be over £6 you have to pay on the day.

The duration of the tour is 1 hour, but we'll stay in the gardens longer without the guide and explore it.

The tour starts at 1pm so please make sure you arrive on time.

I also plan to have lunch or chocolate picnic, but details about it will be announced later.

    We meet tomorrow at 12:30pm outside Kew Gardens tube station. Unless you come from Richmond please use the tunnel to cross to the other side of the station and wait for us just outside the building of the tickets office.

    If you're late please come directly to Victoria Gate and give me a call on my mobile[masked] so you can locate us.

    more ways to get 50% off. if you're art fund member you get 50% off. If you travel on your Oyster you need to buy Rail paper ticket. You can buy a single rail ticket. the cheapest would be Gunsbery to Kew Gardens or Richmond to Kew Gardens. That ticket is £2, but buy from the machine and select Network Railcard. You're not going to travel on the train so it doesn't matter if you select that option, but you'll pay only £1.30.
