  • One of my favourite places in London. It has so much going on for it, beautiful upkeep, available swimming areas with lifeguards, and a feeling of being close to nature.
  • A beautiful place for family picnics. Dogs can have non restricted play space. You can go swimming if you remembered to go with your swim suit. You get closer to nature with fresh air. Lots to see. Endlessly walking distances.
  • The best place in London, bar none. Genuinely magical place, don't just go up parliament hill, go for a proper wander
  • Lovely views throughout London. I loved the area "one climb from the top:" it wasn't as high up, but I found it much quieter with vertually the same views as the top, but no people picnicking or collecting around the sign post pointing out what is on the horizon.
  • Beautiful park and grounds. Lovely time walking around, recommend going at golden hour because it is the most beautiful lighting. Really calm and serene by the pond.
