Parks & gardens

Some of London's greatest treasures are its green parks and gardens. The capital's parks were labelled "the lungs of London" by 18th Century Prime Minister, William Pitt. From the wide expanse of Hyde Park, with its Serpentine River and delightful gallery showcasing a number of modern artists, to the manicured lawns, hedges and flower borders of Regent's Park to the glorious views and pastoral, country-like acres of Hampstead Heath.
