The Hive

Janice Law and her husband, Don Jansen, pose for a picture outside “The Hive” bee exhibit at Royal Gardens Kew in Great Britain.

Listening for sounds underneath the bark of trees, plus eavesdropping on “conversation” sounds among bees, are highlight exhibits of a day trip from London to Royal Gardens Kew, a 500-acre botanical showcase founded in 1759.

Visitors can take about a 40-minute subway ride from London to Kew, then return to London by boat on the fabled River Thames, or vice versa.
