The capital boasts some truly spectacular parks, from the hidden pockets of green dotted around London to the famous Royal Parks.
They’re a top way to while away the day. Warm up with a frosty stroll, admire London’s leaves as they turn a hundred shades of orange, spot spring flowers or, if it’s summer, bring a picnic, and you’ve got yourself an entire afternoon of lounging action. After a peaceful stroll around Regent’s Park, complete the experience by watching a magical performance at the Open Air Theatre in the heart of the park.
If you find yourself in the mood for a splash, head to the huge lido in Herne Hill’s Brockwell Park and try out the Windrush Lanes that are only available on Saturday mornings.
If you’re in Southwark Park, you might be lucky enough to catch busker Steve Howgego who (brilliantly) sings operatic classics on the bandstand.
