London Parks: The Royal Parks

Although London is home to a number of parks there are some very clear distinctions which separate them into smaller groupings. One such grouping is known as the Royal parks, which are made up of Green Park, St. James’s Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Regent’s Park. These parks are so named because they were once Royal hunting grounds. However, they are now open to the public and are popular among both locals and visitors to the city of London.

Green Park
Once a famous duelling spot, you are more likely to find visitors taking a peaceful walk through its trees and grasslands than taking ten paces with pistol in hand. Running, picnics and nature trails are also popular activities in Green Park.
St. James’s Park
If you came to London to see royal palaces then St. James’s park has exactly what you are looking for. Westminster, St. James’s and Buckingham palace border the park, and can be viewed all year round. The park has a number of children’s playgrounds, floral attractions and even a restaurant.

Hyde Park
There is so much to do in Hyde Park it is difficult to know where to start. Boating, swimming, tennis and horse riding are available daily. The park is home to the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. You will find a huge variety of flora and fauna; with some rare species that are seldom seen anywhere else. If you are really lucky and visit the park during a significant royal event, you just might witness a Royal Gun Salute.

Kensington Gardens
Kensington Gardens is very much a peaceful destination for visitors to relax, and in sunnier climes enjoy a picnic. There are deckchairs throughout the park, two children’s play-parks and a café. For a taste of some of the best Victorian sculptural architecture, you will also find the spectacular Prince Albert Memorial in Kensington Park.

Regent’s Park
The Regent’s Park is home to London’s largest grass sports area, and hosts events such as running, tennis, netball, football and rugby. From May through to September, make sure to visit The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. However, the park has a number of attractions that are open year round, including Queen Mary’s Gardens, Wildlife Garden and The Hubs Sporting Facility.
