London, the commercial epicentre of the UK, is a world-renowned city with an abundance of tourist attractions waiting for you to unleash their beauty. There are castles, palaces, breath-taking constructions to lift you off your feet. However, there is more to London than these famous monuments and historic castles. If you are one of those who want to bend their way to tranquillity and soothing calmness, then here are some of the London parks where you can achieve this.
Situated at a convenient distance of 30 minutes from the main city, this park truly personifies the fictional setting of Robin Hood saga. The park is dotted with thousand years’ old oak trees, compact copses, heavily dense forests and an extensive range of unbelievable flora and fauna. This is the largest royal park in the city with an expanse of over 2500 acres. The Isabella plantation is one of the most famous sections of this regal park. Intensively wooded and stuffed with hillocks of azaleas, magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias, this section will surely cast a magical spell over your distressed senses. Snuggled cosily at the edge of the city, this park also offers panoramic views of some parts of the city.
If you totally absorbed with this idea of distancing yourself from the razzmatazz of the city life, then this is the place for you. Winding ways and bridleways pepper this rustic appealing location. The Common section of the area has some sprinkled pubs. The Wimbledon village too is populated with quaint, small pubs. So, travellers, fun while on a run is possible here.
The second largest royal park is located just north of the illustrious Hampton Court. The vast expansive surface gives you the impression that this park is nothing but a huge rural field; however, this is quite a deception. A scrutinized look can easily disclose the tracings of the medieval field boundaries. The most remarkable feature, however, remains the ‘Chest Avenue.’ It is a mile long way with the splendour of chestnut trees adorning the whole thoroughfare. Couple your visit with the Hampton Court and you will find the visit to this park a cherished experience.
