City life is bearable, enjoyable, possible, and preferable because of the
#3 parks and green spaces.
London leads the world in this. Britain is kind of known for its green thumb anyway, right? Five Royal Parks in Central London alone (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St. James Park, Green Park, Regent’s Park). Hundreds of small garden squares scattered about.
You will never be too far from a bench and a better view. We partook often. Well done, London, well done.
We’re partial to Regent’s Park (and ZSL within)
and Paddington Gardens
