Never visited this wild, vibrant corner of Richmond Park? Good news – with spring around the corner, now is the perfect time to explore what is unquestionably one of London’s most beautiful green spaces. Its huge patches of rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas will soon be in full bloom, with much more fantastic flora to be found within the 40 acres of woodland. Free
Is it a coincidence that the Tube’s most luscious-looking line is a portal to some of the greenest spots in London? Perhaps it’s down to the fact that the District line is the third oldest line on the network, and the biggest in terms of the number of stations, so the city has grown with it, and it calls at all manner of wild, wondrous places.
Lucky for you, these spots are all open during the wonderful world of off-peak – which means that your District line excursions will be super-affordable.
Did you know? In 1905, fishmongers were banned from transporting their stock on the Districtline’s trains.
