Taking a stroll in London’s most beautiful gardens is something we have been missing during the recent winter weather, but with spring just around the corner we are keeping our fingers crossed for a bit of much needed sunshine. Escape the concrete jungle that is London and take the kids to play and explore the stunning gardens London has to offer. Here are our recommended gardens which we believe should not go to miss this Easter Holiday.
Explore the 300 acres which is home to more than 30,000 types of plants and a scientific research center of international renown. This verdant garden in southwest London has a 250 year history and is a World Heritage site. Discover beautiful glasshouses including the iconic Palm House and its exotic rainforest; the Princess of Wales Conservatory which invites you to explore 10 of the world’s climatic zones; and the Waterlily House with its amazing, giant lily pads.
Regent’s Park is the largest grass area for sports in central London and offers a wide variety of activities, an Open Air Theatre, London zoo, gardens and a boating lake. Walk through the elegant flowerbeds in Avenue Gardens, see more than 12,000 roses in Queen Mary’s Gardens, or hire a rowing boat and join the ducks on the boating lake. Take a stroll up Primrose Hill for the amazing view of London’s skyline. The park also provides a warm welcome for wildlife. It has a large wetland area and is home to around 100 species of wild birds and a breading population of hedgehogs.
Situated right in the heart of London, Hyde Park offers both world class events and concerts together with plenty of quiet places to relax and unwind. Have a go at boating, tennis, horse riding or join the many joggers, walkers and cyclists enjoying the open air. Take the kids to the exciting and adventurous playground, featuring climbing frames, a swing set and slide or investigate the Diana Memorial Fountain. Hyde Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks and covers an area of 350 acres.
Who would have thought that you can escape the city atmosphere and indulge in the great outdoors while being so close to central London. Richmond Park is filled with it’s wide open spaces, grasslands and deer herds. The park is a top location for ancient trees and supports a range of rare species including birds, beetles, bats, grasses and wildflowers. You can even hire bikes for some off road cycling along the Tamsin Trail.
