A Weekend In London: Explore The Parks

Author Editor - 2 minute read

Here in London, it is safe to say we are spoilt for choice when it comes to our famous green parks. Whether you are looking for a peaceful jog, a fabulous picnic spot or simply just a long scenic walk, there's something to suit every schedule.

Richmond Park

Take yourself out of the hustle and bustle of city life for the day and travel out to Southeast London to spend a relaxing day in Richmond Park, also known for being one of the largest Royal Parks. If you are looking for a classic bike ride, there are many routes depending on how long you want your ride to be. A word of warning though: it gets hilly in places so make sure to properly fuel before setting off.

Richmond Park is best known for being home to red and fallow deers and so, if you're lucky enough, you might even be able to spot one, making it the perfect spot for wildlife enthusiasts. Our top tip? If you can face the early wake-up call, it's a beautiful spot for some photography at sunrise.

St James’s Park

Neighbours to Buckingham Palace, St James’s Park boasts beautiful green gardens right in the centre of London. The lakes, fountains and well-kept gardens makes this park the dream for a afternoon stroll.

This scenic park has views like no other. We suggest taking a walk over the Blue Bridge to be greeted by views of Buckingham Palace in one direction and Big Ben the other - it's the ideal spot to grab one of the many deck chairs dotted around the park.

Relax and spend all day people watching – time will fly!

Hyde Park

In the heart of London, you will find the famous Hyde Park. London’s oldest boating lake is situated in this park, where people can come and rent a boat or go for a swim. This park isn't just suited for sunny days, Hyde Park is the home of Winter Wonderland, which is a festive experience that can’t be missed.

Fall in love with the rose garden and swan-filled lakes whilst enjoying a picnic. This park certainly accommodates for every season.

Regents Park

The home to London Zoo, Regents Park has it all. Whether you want to pitch up for the day with friends to enjoy a picnic whilst taking in the dreamy views to attending their open-air theatre and watching a classic film you could spend a full day here and never get bored.

Held outside on the beautiful grounds of Primrose Hill join in on a Yoga or Pilates class, a tranquil retreat for those who love to work out in nature.
