The Lungs of London
We Londoners cherish our eight Royal Parks. The four central Royal Parks stretch more than 4km (nearly 3 miles) from Kensington Palace, past Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square, through Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park and St James’s Park. They are ideal for guided walking or cycle tours. There are centuries of history, important monuments, beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers and recent events include Beach Volley Ball and the Triathlon during the 2012 Olympic Games.
