Journey Through London Part VIII
BEST PARKS & GARDENS IN LONDON
Dotted with large, lush green patches, London's parks are stunning in any season.
CHELSEA PHYSIC GARDEN - ( 66 Royal Hospital Garden, Chelsea, London SW3 4HS ) The largest fruiting olive tree in Britain and the world's northern-most outdoor grapefruit tree call the historic Chelsea Physic Gardens home.The Chelsea Physic Gardens are much-loved by locals, and this is a magical spot for a short walk in one of the most interesting gardens in the capital. Educational and beautiful, a visit to these historic gardens is sure to give you renewed motivation to attend to your garden.
HOLLAND PARK- (Ilchester Place, London, Holland Park, London W8) Pretty, petit Holland Park is the ideal location for those wanting to escape the clamour of the city but who don't want to travel too far out of the centre. The park offers small, cosy grassy knolls, cooling woodland glades, wild ponds, pavilions, an open expanse for games and general frolicking, playgrounds for older and younger children and a caf. Small, but perfectly formed, this lovely park is perfect for an intimate picnic or romantic stroll.
HYDE PARK - ( Rangers Lodge, Hyde Park, London W2 2UH ) Horse riding, rollerblading, bowls, putting and tennis are all catered for while informal games of cricket, rounders and frizbee spring up on the area to the south of the park known as The Sports Field. A number of famous London attractions are also housed within this central space. Hyde Park boasts Speakers' Corner, the Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain and the Serpentine Boating Lake - another feature owed to Queen Caroline who started a new landscaping trend by designing this natural-looking lake. Best for:
Sunbathing and swimming, horse-riding and rollerblading, ducks, deckchairs and monuments.
GREEN PARK- (Piccadilly, St James's, London W1J 9DZ ) Within the park there are statues, monuments and grassy areas fit for an impromptu football match. There are even deck-chairs laid on in summer. Glorious.
BUSHY PARK- ( Park Office White Lodge The Stockyard, Hampton Court Road, TW12 2EJ ) Bushy Park is the second largest of the Royal Parks. The lush grass, wooded copses and winding rivers do, however, hide an interesting past. These days Bushy Park is simply a wonderful place to get outside, walk away an afternoon and watch the sun slide spectacularly behind the horizon. The parks most notable
feature is Chestnut Avenue.Best for:
Fishing, riding, deer, bracken and Bronze Age burial mound.
HIGHGATE WOOD & QUEEN'S WOOD - ( Muswell Hill Road, N10 3JN ) A walk around Highgate Woods is a fantastic way to escape the hubbub of the city, its cooling glades offer escape from the sun on hot days and shelter on cool afternoons. When night falls you can join one of the organised Bat Walks. These are extremely popular so pre-booking is essential.Best for:
Oak trees, birds and bats, cricket and café.
REGENT'S PARK- ( Inner Circle, Regent's Park, London NW1 4NR) Regent's Park is a huge, thriving green expanse in the heart of the capital consisting of two circular areas (an Inner and Outer Circle).A number of pretty eateries also populate the park, while Primrose Hill (to the north) is heaving with trendy cafes and bars, not to mention some fantastic views over Westminster and the City.
PHOENIX GARDEN- (21 Stacey Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 8DG ) Hidden from most tourists and residents alike, lies this beautiful West End garden. Originally a car park, this small city centre idyll is now a tranquil haven for wildlife. Frogs and tadpoles saturate the pond, while birds of all shapes and sizes frequent the trees, nest boxes and feeders.Best for:
Volunteers, ponds and peace, frogs, birds and city centre calm.
POTTERS FIELDS PARK- ( City Hall, Bankside, 110 The Queens Walk, London SE1 2AA ) Potters Fields Park occupies a prime spot between City Hall (from where the Mayor runs London) and Tower Bridge. The pedestrianised, grassy area on the south bank of the Thames hosts a variety of events and activities from the annual Thames Festival in September to seasonal Christmas fairs.
I would recommend you to visit all of those parks & gardens I wrote about ! But my favourite is Hyde Park & Phoenix Garden .
