Dragons in London

The Great Pagoda at Kew Gardens in London has recently been restored to its 18th century splendour — that’s the wording of the website, by the way. The restoration included the return of 80 dragons on the roofs, each carved from wood and gilded with gold.

Here are two shots of the Pagoda itself, in which you can make out the dragons once you know that’s what the things sticking out from the roofs are!

    • I remember the pagoda being just something to walk past, or glimpsed in the distance. It’s much more eye catching after its renovation. You can climb to the top (but we didn’t, being lazy and disinclined to pay yet another fee at Kew).
