  • Nice getaway from the city centre. Just a few tube stops and you are in a country village (sort of). Had lunch at a very nice upscale pub, the Freemason Arms.

  • Oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of town. Great family area with lovely views and various coffee shops and restaurants near by. Recommend 100% for relaxation and good family time!
  • Lovely walk through either rough terrain or the more civilised one 😜, meaning clean paths. It combines a good place to have a picnic or a good jog. Loved it! I relaxed and it provides a good vibe to start or finish your working week..
  • Probably the biggest and the best park around the area. Literally a forest with a lot of routes where you can chill, camp, take a walk or have a jog. Our favourite soo far.
  • The perfect countryside, within inner London. My home for over 10 years. I am blessed every day.
  • Lovely place for a walk. Lots of dog walkers but not any dog mess. Great to get away from things.
