Inside the gardens of Hampton Court Palace, there you’ll find the largest vine in the world. The Guinness Book of Records certified it without doubt in January 2005. The vine is in an enclosed garden where visitors are not allowed to go inside. If you’re lucky, you can talk to the gardener when she’s there. The Hampton Court Palace Gardens are really huge so it’s better to get a map when you get in.
The largest vine in the world is right next to the Pond Gardens.
The vine is also believed as the oldest one in the world.
It has a circumference of 3.8 meters and the longest branch measures up to 75 meters long.
And even until today, the vine still produces grapes and you can buy some of them in September. They’re sold only for three weeks at the Garden Shop at Hampton Court Palace.
The vine is a variety of desert grapes so it can’t be made into wine.
