Parks & nature in United Kingdom

Park
“Covering 350 acres, Hyde Park is London's largest open space and has been a destination for sightseers since 1635. One of the park's highlights is the Serpentine, an 18th-century man-made lake popular for boating and swimming. Hyde Park is also where you'll find Speakers' Corner, a traditional forum for free speech (and heckling). Another Hyde Park landmark is Apsley House, former home of the first Duke of Wellington and purchased after his famous victory at Waterloo. Now a museum, it houses Wellington's magnificent collections of paintings, including Velázquez's The Waterseller of Seville, along with gifts presented by grateful European kings and emperors. England's greatest hero is also commemorated at the Wellington Arch.”

Monument / Landmark
“If you go to the Eiffel Tower you should avoid the elevators (where will have to wait at least one hour) and take the stairs. It is far easier that it seems until the second floor (the third being quite high). Morevoer climbing inside the tower make feel being in the heart of the structure and let you take time to see”

Park
“An unexpected treasure in the city! Gorgeous views in a tranquil setting. Perfect for lounging in the grass with a good book. It's not a flat park so be prepared to walk up and down hills. There are cute surprises like a waterfall too.”

Garden
“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”

Lovely path runs the whole way round the park so good for cycle/ scooter and running. Skate park is always busy. Also have a couple of good cafes at each end of the park. ”
