Spring is finally here. You can see and feel it in every corner of London. Spring is not only in the air, it's in our step and we can't help but notice that everyone seems a little more cheerful, windows are open and Dahlias are blooming wherever you look. We’re actually extra excited this Spring since in the next week or so we’ll be in the Apple App store. Whoop!
Until then, here are some of our favourite jaunts perfect for welcoming the Spring equinox:
You’ll find Holland Park amongst attractive large Victorian townhouses, and high-end shops and restaurants. The park offers activities for every type of visitor, whether it's playing football, having a beer in the sunshine or exploring a flower garden or two. Kyoto Garden is not to be missed and is an amazing escape from the busy streets. The park also has a massive playground and the odd peacock.
Victoria Park is one of London’s most historical parks and has been visited by Londoners seeking nature and the outdoors for nearly 170 years. Why not get there by walking along the equally magnificent, Regents canal! The park has large spaces for dogs to play and for frisbees to be thrown. At the Victoria Park lake, you can grab lunch at The Pavilion Café or rent a boat and paddle amongst the low-hanging trees.
Hampstead Heath is one of London's most popular open spaces. With an amazing view of the city, this place has it all; thick woods, water, sports areas, learning centre and playground's for the kids. Covering 320 hectares, this place can keep you occupied for hours. The heath, as it’s called by locals, is rambling and hilly, embracing ponds, recent and ancient woodlands, a lido, playgrounds, and a training track, and it adjoins the former stately home of Kenwood House and its estate. A perfect place for a proper jaunt.
