So to find the best parks in London, your estate agent Central London Greater London Properties recommends visiting these royal parks during and after the National Park City Week!
St James’s Park: Starting with one of the best parks in London, and also the oldest in London, this Royal Park has three palaces including St. James’s Palace, the ever popular Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament flanking it. St. James’s Park merges seamlessly with the Green Park which is a section that occupies the northern end of the former.
Known as one of the most scenic royal park, this is the place that you can get to witness the grand spectacle of ‘Changing the Guard.’ If you are looking for some quiet moments, just stroll across to the beautiful lake at the center of the park.
Regent’s Park: This pretty park has much to offer in terms of ornamental gardens, lake and some amazing green spaces. Take up boating on the lake or feed the birds that frequent the park. In fact, Regent’s Park is the breeding center for waterfowl!
Hyde Park: It may be difficult to know where Hyde Park ends and Kensington Gardens begin! A visual treat in Central London, Hyde Park is a jogger’s paradise. There is plenty too in terms of art with a bronze statue of Peter Pan.
