Some of this country’s most spectacular parks are in our capital city. You may not associate open green spaces with inner city locations. If you’ve never experienced a London Park, the spring time is a fantastic time to make their acquaintance.
More often than not visitors to London come for the shops, museums and sights but pay little attention to the amazing parks that London has to offer. Residents and locals however are well acquainted and you’ll find plenty to do and see. One of the best things about these beautiful oases is that enjoying them is free!
The most popular parks are the Royal Parks and many of these are clustered around the main sights. St James Park and Green Park border the grounds of Buckingham Palace, and St James Park incorporates The Mall. Covering 58 acres, St. James is fantastic in the spring with plenty of greenery and lakes. The water is home to the obligatory ducks and geese, but Green Park is also home to a more surprising pod of pelicans.
Green Park is a little smaller than St James at 47 acres and tends to be a little more peaceful than its buzzing neighbour with plenty of greenery and mature trees which really come into their own with blossoms and fresh green leaves.
Also in the thick of it are Hyde Park and Kensington Park. Hyde Park is one of London’s most popular parks; with over 4000 trees over 350 acres it encompasses, meadowlands, lakes, horse rides and plenty of opportunities to chill and take it easy. It is also where they hold the annual Proms in the Park and Party in the Park. Its neighbouring Kensington Park is slightly smaller at 275 acres and is more `formal` than Hyde Park. Here you will find avenues of trees, formal flower beds, The Albert Memorial and a statue of Peter Pan as well as the Peter Pan themed Diana Memorial Playground.
Regents Park has been popular with Londoners for around 150 years. The 410 acres incorporates the largest outdoor sports arena in London. Climb Primrose Hill for some spectacular London views or visit nearby London Zoo. The park also boasts an open air theatre and a number of cafes where you can chill out. It’s easy to forget you’re in London here.
At 2500 acres and with a herd of free roaming deer, Richmond Park is by far London’s biggest park and has royal connections that date back to the 13th Century. With its elevated position there are amazing views on clear days where you can see the River Thames and St Paul’s Cathedral. The spring is a great time to discover the park’s woodlands, ponds and flower gardens and the park is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
London is full of parks and open spaces which really come into their own when the sun starts to shine and the weather warms and they are easy to get to on the tube, on foot, or by taxi. On our London Taxi Tours, you can drive down The Mall with Green Park and St. James Park on either side or visit whichever London park takes your fancy.
