    Kew Gardens.in Richmond,...

    Favorite thing: Kew Gardens.
    in Richmond, Surrey, is both a beautiful park and an important botanical research centre. There's a vast expanse of lawn and formal gardens and two soaring Victorian conservatories - the Palm House and the Temperate House - which are home to exotic plant life. Hampstead Heath is one of the few places in London where you can actually forget that you're in the middle of an 800-sq-mile (1300 sq km) city. There are woods, meadows, hills and bathing ponds and, most importantly of all, lots of space.

    Spring Sunset

    Favorite thing: Take a stroll in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. If your goal of the trip is not to cover as many tourist sites as possible, then these two parks are for you to take a break from the hustle and bustle and smell the fresh air.

    Favorite thing: London has some big parks.

    Here you can see a small piece of Regent's Park; Queen's Mary Gardens. It is a circular spot full of roses.

    Hyde Park

    by OrlandoBR Updated Jul 24, 2003

    Favorite thing: The creatures we find here are far more friendly than those creepy ones from the Parisian Bois de Boulogne! Cute little bears instead of weird old ladies...

    Kensington Gardens Sunset

    Favorite thing: Bring a tripod with you. This was the last shot I could take hand-holding my camera. It was a glorious sunset.

    Favorite thing: The best time to visit is before sunset. Allow enough time to get to the lake area and walk towards Kensington Garden.

    Fondest memory: HYDE PARK, the cool, tree-canopied streets, so comfortable that I simply laid on the carpet like grasses and slept for an hour.
