  • This is a very nice Park, outside the circuit of the parks tour of London, nice walk and that also allows you to visit the cemetery in Highgate, which also is worthwhile (although for this are required to purchase tickets in advance)

  • Unfortunately, the weather was rainy (even snow) and we could not enjoy the view of London. But despite that, the Park is beautiful and deserves a ballad.

  • 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.
