SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Vancouver, Canada

 

A cosmopolitan city located on the edge of the wilderness, Vancouver offers both natural and urban beauty. On my trip, I trekked through scenic Stanley Park, hopped aboard a floatplane for stunning tour of the city, followed by landing on a mountain lake. Back in the city, just minutes away, I also discovered the unique shops of Granville Market, tasted local salmon at a First Nations restaurant, and so much more. Here’s why Vancouver is a place to love.

 

 

The Queen’s Garden

 

With permission from Queen Elizabeth, this program covers a year in Buckingham Palace Garden, exploring both the history and the natural history of this remarkable hidden royal treasure in the heart of London. Viewers see the garden’s transformation across four seasons, with a chance to marvel at rare flowers bred especially for the queen, extraordinary wildlife captured with hidden cameras, a vast lake with an island in the middle where royal bees make honey, and a 15-foot marble urn that once belonged to Napoleon. The wildest corners function as an important wildlife haven in London, as well as serve as a backdrop for the annual 8,000-attendee Royal Garden Party.
