Cross Kew's Sackler Crossing

The Sackler Crossing, in Kew Gardens, is the only crossing on the main lake, installed in 2006 following a donation from Dr Mortimer and Theresa Sackler whose donation funded the bridge.

Designed by the architect John Pawson, it has a mesmerising curved appearance, and its sides are made of bronze posts which, whilst preventing wayward children from falling into the lake, blocks much less of the view than you might expect.

Your author visited Kew last week, thankfully as a guest of the Gardens, and is aware it is rather expensive to do so. However, there are many interesting features to see, and it would be easy to spend a day there.

  1. For a city I have visited on numerous occasions it appears I have been truly ignorant on what it has to offer.
