Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

As every Londoner knows, the Hyde Park pelicans are one of the best things IN THE ENTIRE CITY. And they're not the only great part of a trip to one of our many parks. London, in fact, is one of the greenest capital cities in the world. Its famous parks, as this exhibition shows, started life as royal hunting grounds (that's how Richmond Park got its deer) but were later opened up for everyone to use (hurrah!). See paintings, drawings, photographs and other memorabilia relating to the parks' many uses, including as wartime training sites and raucous pleasure gardens, at the Garden Museum.
