  • A haven in central London. Best seen at dawn when the deer are roaming and there are no cars and few cyclists. Gates to the park close to cars at night but the pedestrian (bike) entrance is still open. Occasionally the park is completely closed for the deer cull. Check the website. The 20mph speed limit is often enforced by the authorities (including on cyclists).
  • Largest park in London and a fantastic place for dog walkers, families or anyone looking to enjoy a bit of greenery. There are numerous car parks so you can easily explore different parts of the park if you can't walk around too much. Otherwise there is nothing stopping you from walking around the entire park.
  • one of the best park in London. Just be careful of the Police when you are driving as they try to give you a ticket when you are driving 4mph faster then 20mph speed limit. Really annoying.
  • Such a lovely place to visit, stretch your legs and get some air... also it’s great to see the wild deer roaming free!!!
  • Good park lots of areas, animals good views. Only bad thing that it's nor possible to cycle in 90% in the park. Went to cycle, but saw only signs "do no cycle"
