“Lovely for families with small children as the park has a number of playgrounds and a mini zoo but equally great for solo travellers, couples, groups of friends or business travellers with easy access to Central London.”

“The Mapesbury Dell is Northwest London's best kept secret and it’s only a 6 minute walk away! It’s an award-winning garden, hidden behind a row of residential houses. Although the Dell is small, there’s something for everyone to enjoy - a superb play area for children, a pond with wildlife, green lawns for summer lazing, picnic tables and benches and stunning gardens. It's a wonderful place to come with kids or to just sit, stroll and enjoy some peace and quiet. There are annual events such as Wild Day in the summer, a Midsummer Open Air Opera Evening, a Back to School children's party in September, festive fun and carol-singing at Christmas. Events have free admission.”
