With just a few steps from Hyde Park, you’ll find yourself roaming around London’s Kensington Gardens, which used to be a deer park; yet even more sprawling masses of green space to soak up.
Have a wander around Megan and Harry’s back yard, amongst the swans and tree lined pathways or sit amidst the squirrels (that will jump onto your bench, sit beside you, nearly knock over your bottle of water and stare you out – waiting for you to give them food. True story).
London may have a lot to answer for when it comes to traffic, pollution, crowds, hustle and bustle – but it certainly compensates for some of that with parks like this – it’s absolutely massive, overwhelmingly green and a welcome resting place from the busy city streets.
You can walk under the bridge or cross over the road to step from Hyde Park into Kensington Gardens…and vice versa
This chap was dedicated to feeding the pigeons – he had them flocking around and landing on him to eat out of his hand…
More fabulous trees…

The squirrels are surprisingly bold, not scared of people and very conformable getting close to you!

When his owner said to sit by the chestnut …spot misheard and sat on the the chest and nuts!
You are not making me walk on the pavement anymore in this blazing hot sun – I have burnt paws!
And this dog says it is far too hot to go for a walk
Nope! It is not time for home yet. Stay put!
You do not have to ruff anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not bark when questioned something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do howl may be given in evidence.”
