London is one of the greenest cities in the world. There is always a reason to visit a park or garden in this charming city whether it is for sunbathing in summer, a relaxing picnic in autumn or refreshing strolls in winter or spring. There is also no better way to take a break from the daily stresses of city life than spending some quiet time surrounded in greenery.
For those who plan to travel to London finding the right accommodation is a must whether you are in the city for business or leisure. Located overlooking the Hyde Park one the most prominent parks in the city is the Metropolitan by COMO London, a luxurious urban hotel with an authentic touch. This hotel is ideal for those who enjoy taking a break from work or spending some quality time under the lush green vegetation of London since it is in close distance to several Parks and Gardens in the city.
The Hyde Park is one of the best loved parks in the city. You find over four thousand trees here as well as a lake, a meadow and rose gardens, so the size of the park is simply enormous. You find the Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain here as well. Regent’s Park is another stunning location with rose gardens, the largest outdoor sports area in the city, an open air theater as well as opportunities to watch various bird species.
Kew Gardens is a magnificent site covering 300 acres with over thirty thousand species of plants. You find an aquarium, tree house towers for outdoor play and much more activities especially kids can enjoy. Adults are not forgotten with two galleries in place, one is the Marianne North Gallery and the other Shirley Sherwood Gallery, and both showcase botanical art for visitors.
