October 28, 2017 Osvaldo Hartline

Wembley (/ˈwɛmbli/) is an area of northwest London, England, and part of the London Borough of Brent. It is home to the Wembley Arena and Wembley Stadium. Wembley formed a separate civil parish from 1894 and was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1937. In 1965, the area merged with the Municipal Borough of Willesden to create the London Borough of Brent, and has since formed part of Greater London.

This is a beautiful mandir that came a bit as a surprise when your driving on Ealing Road. Very nice carvings on the outside. Nice statues inside. Parking next to the mandir was 2GBP per hour.

Hen Corner

Reviewed By Christina N - Slough, United Kingdom

Absolutely wonderful "Toast & Marmalade" workshop at Hen Corner, making traditional Seville Orange Marmalade, a Lemon, Ginger & Honey Marmalade, and a loaf of bread. Sara was an excellent teacher - and aside from the marmalade making, she taught us a whole different way of mixing and kneading dough that really produced great bread. Mine was a mix of 40% seeded white/60% wholemeal flour, using normal Dove yeast, so easily replicated. It tasted great both as sandwiches and toast.
So far I've dug into the Lemon marmalade (designed by Sara for a Honey Show competition), which is delicious and definitely worth repeating. The ginger in syrup ingredient adds a little kick that knocks it out of the flu 'lemon & honey' taste profile and into something really lovely.
We also got to check out their mini urban smallholding backyard, complete with hens and bee hives as well as the kitchen garden. It's a little slice of 'Good Life' paradise in the centre of London.
It was an excellent day - learnt lots, in a lovely environment, delicious lunch and afternoon tea, it was a great deal of fun and very sociable with four other lovely ladies. I would definitely recommend the Hen Corner courses (there's a Cider course in September), and am actually going back next month to do the "Cheese in a Day" course to learn to make Mozzarella, Feta and Camembert. Looking forward to it!

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Kew is London's largest UNESCO World Heritage site offering unique landscapes, vistas and iconic architecture from every stage of the Gardens' history. Our collection of living plants is the largest and most diverse in the world, growing out in the landscape and within our glasshouses and nurseries.

Reviewed By Richard G - Norwich, United Kingdom

Something for everyone including children.
If you are interested in horticulture or not you are sure to find plenty of things of interest in this 300 + acres of park, Gardens, and historic buildings/ glass houses.
There are plenty of places to eat, from full meals to snacks. Plenty of spotless toilets dotted around the site. The food at the White Peaks restaurant looked really good although we didn’t eat there as we were there well before lunch. The cakes looked good and were covered. However when we decided to stop for lunch we were at the Victoria but we were not impressed and gave it a miss.
If you are not up to walking there is a train going around the site, cost is £5 for a full day pass and you can get off and on as many times as you like, well worth it.
We went in March when some things we shut and the trees and shrubs were dormant
despite this we had a memorable day.
To make the most of this place, you need at least a day to do it justice.
We parked on Ferry lane Car park arriving at 9.45am and there was hardly anyone there! Although it was a Sunday and the clocks had gone forward! Cost £7, whether you stay there 1hour or the day, very convenient for the Brentford gate.
We will go again later in the year.

Our U3A day out was enhanced by the enthusiasm and energy of the volunteer guide at the Musical Museum, Roy, who had been an aircraft engineer, jeweller and clock-maker and now shares his lifetime of knowledge and passion with the museum visitors - inspirational to all of us who are not so young ourselves! He demonstrated most of the mechanical instruments, which was like going back to a bygone era, and took pains to involve the children in the group. After that we were treated to a virtuoso performance by another volunteer, Chris, on the Mighty Wurlitzer. All in all, a very enjoyable afternoon.

Northala Fields

Reviewed By tripops - Harrow, United Kingdom

Very good for exercise, walking, strolling and chatting with friends and family. Small cafe and play area for children to run off their energy. Hidden behind the main road so could easily be missed however the large green mounds are visible. Can walk around the water area although could have more plants and flowers there. Relaxing local area worth visiting for something different to do.

London Museum of Water & Steam

The London Museum of Water & Steam at Kew Bridge was built in 1838 and is home to an internationally recognised collection of working steams engines that can be seen in operation every weekend. Come and discover the story of London's water supply through interactive displays and fascinating objects from Romans times to modern day. The museum is also home to a narrow gauge steam railway which is in operation every weekend and selected dates in the school holidays. Families can also enjoy the new Waterworks interactive gallery, with hands on exhibits that bring the story of London's water supply to life and prepare to get wet in the outdoors "Splashzone" where children of all ages can turn wheels, gears and pumps to move water by hand to create amazing outcomes. The rotative steam engines are in operation every weekend with the Cornish Engines running on monthly event days (see website for event listings). After all that, relax and refuel in the Stokers Cafe where you will be able to choose from a range of hot and cold drinks and homemade treats. We are a 5 minute walk from Kew Bridge Station (25 minutes from London Waterloo) and are a short bus journey away from South Ealing station (Picadilly Line + 65 bus) and Gunnersbury (District Line and Overground + 237 or 267 bus). There is a small car park on site for visitors.

It was only recent that I finally managed to visit the museum.
It is s house for precious water processing machines from the past and old ones were powered by steam so that it got its name.
The site was a water processing facility which started operating in the 18th century.
Well recommended museum to spend a day with kids.
A cafe at the entrance is rather small but cozy.
