I went to Kew Gardens in London a couple of years ago and snapped a picture

at one time i knew the name of it, but it now escapes me.

the flowers were strikingly small. i would guess about the size of a US nickel. unfortunately this is the only picture i can find

RE: What kind of Passion Flower

You'll have to get the opinion of someone who grows a lot of Decalobas (a subgenus of Passiflora).

My guess would be maybe P. suberosa (???)

Here are a couple photos I found online:

I agree that it's a suberosa with the lobed foliage. Here's two whose blooms are pretty much identical but one has unlobed foliage. The mature stems of both should have a whitish corky covering, hence the common name "Corkystem Passion Flower".
