The London parks. If the weather is good I would definately recommend Regent's Park, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park ( especially on Sundays as you can stand and listen to all the maniacs at Speakers Corner ). Believe me - many of them seem to be truly crazy... There are so many great parks to relax in - get away from the fumes and sounds of the big city.
Parliament hill is a part of Hampstead Heath . A huge parkland in The Camden , Hampstead area of London. Climb to the top of the hill for stunning views across London.
I love to go to Speakers corner and listen to the guys going off. It is such fun and it seems like most people going there, go there for a free laugh.
In many of London’s parks you come across squirrels. Be fast with your camera because they move extremely fast !
Saint James’s Park is an area once owned by the Crown (Henry VIII had it turned into a deer chase). It was opened to the public by Charles II.
It has a small lake with two islands.
A peaceful and relaxing english park with a nice little pond with ducks, wild goose and swans.It's an ideal place to relax after your visit in Buckingham Palace.
I would highly recommend checking out the parks in London. I enjoyed watching a football match, smelling all kinds of roses, and just relaxing in a few of London's larger park areas.
If you're heading down to Buckingham Palace, take a stroll through St. James' on the way. A nice park with views of Buckingham and the Eye of London.
Green Park is a park joined with St James's Park, very close to Buckingham Palace. It's not as big or as interesting as St James's or Hyde Park, but it's still lovely to walk through :)
The nicest way to get to Buckingham Palace is from Green Park tube and then walk down through the park instead of getting off at Victoria and walking along the street ingesting petrol fumes.
The Green Park is at the East of Buckingham Palace. It was purchased by King Henry VIII at the same time as Hyde Park and St James's. This Park known for its old trees and tree-lined street.
After walking around the city for miles all you need is to rest & relax. A good idea is to stop over Green Park & sit on a bench to enjoy the lovely view & the singing of the birds.
Namely Regents, St. James' (Pictured) and Hyde park which are the best. A chance to get away from the noise (to an extent)and pollution.
Since we couldn't get on the London Eye, we took to Primrose Hill for some views of the city. It's a nice park in and of itself, and is right near Regents Park and the London Zoo.
