Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Sick of walking around the same old London parks? Sick of the sight of other Londoners in their ’nice coats’? Yeah, aren’t we all. Luckily, the green heads on Time Out’s team have spilled the beans on the good tree-filled, grass-filled, flower-filled spots around town that the crowds haven't swarmed to yet.
From nature reserves to community spaces, we’ve dug up some of London’s most secret gardens – the Davids to Goliaths like the Royal Parks. Yes, you might have to seek them out in the shadow of an empty office block. Yes, there'll be no Santander cycles and rentable deckchairs there. But, instead you’ll find pockets of glorious nature to tuck yourself into and forget about all your worries. Perfect for a lunch hour walk.
That said: if you visit, please be mindful of the people who live locally and adhere to social-distancing guidelines.
