Love this place! Although kinda don't want to tell you that, as then you might start going there, and then it won't be a perfect little best-kept secret anymore....

This is a beautifully wild yet carefully managed green space right between the frantic bustle of the city and residential areas of Tower Hamlets. It's an oasis of wildlife where often rare species can be spotted, too.

Beautiful park in the heart of the East End. If you're a dog owner this is dog walking heaven.

Unexpectedly lovely park in the middle of a very inner city area. I hadn't heard of a cemetery park before, but it seems to combine the tranquil, reflective qualities of a cemetery with nice though slightly overgrown gardens for strolling around. I am sadly yet to find the Byzantine style chapel and Chalk Maze the sign speaks of (has anyone found these? Do they exist?) but still, if you feel like you've been rushing around a lot lately, this place is good for spending a few hours quietly wandering and thinking about what's important in life, namely, life itself, and spending time outdoors in parks.

Totally fascinating and wonderful woodland full of wildlife right in the heart of Tower Hamlets. It's the home of the excellent Shuffle film festival, but if you've only been for that, you're missing out. Lots of events all year round!

Lovely place to walk around, to sit and think, to breathe in fresh oxygen, listen to the birds singing and to watch the butterflies flit about. And, it's minutes from a central London tube station. Marvellous!

It's my daily walk to and from work and it's a pleasure. After 12 years I still get a thrill seeing the foxes and other wildlife. Sunny, misty mornings make this place magical.

London's most urban woodland and one of London's magnificent seven cemeteries. Providing a piece of the Countryside in the City and connecting people to local history. It's home to many rare and unique plants and animals and provides educational workshops to over 7000 local children. Fighting nature deprivation and connecting children to nature on their doorstep.

This is the most awesome place in East London. It has wildlife, trees and other plants and is of interest every day of the year. An oasis of peace and countryside in the heart of East London. The manager, his staff and the volunteers make this a vibrant, exciting place to visit with its regular walks, events, educational opportunities for children and adults. In summer it is host to the Shuffle Festival which introduces films and happenings to inspire and entertain. A place to visit and enjoy every day of the year.
