We’ve put a list of some of our favourites together, each with something slightly different to offer.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

This East London landmark was the home of the 2012 Olympics. It has since become a relaxing green space with waterways and the location of many events.

Holland Park

Located west of Central London, Holland Park is based in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. If you head to the park, keep an eye out for the resident peacocks.

Hyde Park

Probably London’s most well-known park, Hyde Park covers 350 acres. It is also home to some of other well-known landmarks including Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain and the Serpentine lake.

Greenwich Park

This is another one of London’s Royal Parks. It overlooks the Thames and gives you one of the best views of the City. You can stand on the Prime Meridian or visit the Royal Observatory.

Victoria Park

Victoria Park is London’s oldest public park. It is in East London, just a stone’s throw away from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park.

Battersea Park

Why not take a visit south of the river to Battersea Park. You’ll have great views of the river. There is even a zoo on the park’s grounds.
