#38 of 161 in Parks in London
Clissold Park is a designated community park (22.57ha) in Stoke Newington, within the London Borough of Hackney. Its facilities include children's playgrounds, sports fields, a bowling green, tennis courts, the café and some other attractions including terrapins in its lakes, as well as deer, quail, and rabbits. The park also comprises remains of the New River, and the Capital Ring has some of its paths running through a small section of the park.HistoryClissold House was built, in the latter half of the 18th century, for Jonathan Hoare, a City merchant, Quaker, philanthropist and anti-slavery campaigner. The park was created to be his idyll, and the stretch of water which wends its way around the house was once part of the New River, a canal that supplied London with clean water from Hertfordshire.

  • My favourite park. Had many kinds of wildlife. There are goats, birds, butterflies, two huge ponds and water fountains. Very clean and looked after. Friendly atmosphere and lots of families and students. Open fields for football and there are basketball pitches. They even have a tennis court and a outdoor pool for the kids in the summertime.
  • One of the best and biggest green spaces in North East London. Great cafe and ice creams. Brilliant Tennis courts, skating bowls, duck-pond and deer enclosure. Paddling pool in the summer time. Huge freestyle playing areas.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
