Oh So Beautiful !!! is the expression when you are delighted to visit these beautiful parks. This isn’t an understatement. The parks in London are truly picturesque with colorful bloomed flowers, lakes, fountains, etc. I love admiring them. 😍
I have visited Hyde Park, Regent’s Park, Battersea Park, and the park at a hop, skip and jump distance from my apartment i.e Caledonian Park. Most of these parks are acres in size.
This is the first park I visited in London before the lockdown. I was in complete awe with its beauty. It is one of the Royal Parks and the largest park in Central London covering an area of 350 acres. Wow, that’s big..! I was lucky to experience all types of weather on a single day! Fine snow and rains showering, cool strong winds and sun peeking out between the clouds. It was worth the visit!. The best moment was to sip hot chocolate in such weather. Aah, a much-required beverage to satiate the cold. Yes, there is a small cafe outside the park called “Colicci“. One of the top activities, both for tourists and Londoners, is boating on the Serpentine lake, a small oasis inhabited by many species of wildlife. It was not operating in winters, hence couldn’t do it.
This is one of my favorites so far. I couldn’t stop admiring the variety of flowers in this park. Can you believe there are 400 types of roses in this park? They were truly mesmerizing. I must say the park is well taken care of. It is ideal for a sunny day. This park has lots to offer to its visitors. It has a lake inhabited by several birds, an open-air theatre, a ground to engage in sports like hockey, tennis, football (soccer), rugby and athletics. Last but not the least, it is home to the London Zoo, which was opened in 1828.
Battersea Park is situated in the Battersea district in South West London. It is a 200 acres large Victorian park built between 1854 and 1870. The park is home to a small children’s zoo, a boating lake, a bandstand, and all-weather outdoor sporting facilities including tennis courts, a running track, and football pitches. The park is the site of the London Peace Pagoda, erected in 1985.
How To Reach: We took the underground tube from Kings Cross St Pancras Station to Vauxhall and from Vauxhall, there is a ferry service to Battersea. It was a great experience traveling by Jetty.
Caledonian Park is best for the locals to do what they want – to walk, run,play sports, picnic or just relax. It has a beautiful clock tower standing tall. To read more about the history of this park click on the given link https://callypark.london/
I have found my new love and that’s exploring the parks. Parks in England are enormous. Truly picturesque landscapes and lakes in these parks seem like an oasis. Every park is worth a visit. I am looking forward to exploring some more.
