Greenwich Park

London

Parks and Open Spaces Royal Parks

Size: 183 acres

Because Greenwich Park is a giant, sweeping hillside, there was no better place to stick the Royal Observatory, designed by the same man behind St. Paul's Cathedral, Sir Christopher Wren. It also lies on the Prime Meridian Line - the place where longitude can be defined as zero - so the park is widely regarded for its astronomical ties.

Aside from this, in the near-perfectly square-shaped park, are the stunning views over our city. St Paul's, The Eye and other buildings jut above the horizon, giving a great city skyline and photographic opportunity.

Furthermore, if you venture down right into the southeastern corner, you'll find The Wilderness. It's a place where the ancient trees have been left to their own devices, and so has the wildlife within. The area is fenced off and, within the boundaries, fallow and red deer live, as well as other forms of British wildlife like bats and foxes.

The park offers a range of sporting options including informal cricket, rugby and football. There are tennis courts available near The Wilderness. Meanwhile in the north of the park there's the boating lake where rowing and pedal boats can be hired on the hour or half hour daily from Easter - October.

Nearest Tube: North Greenwich Station (Jubilee Line)

Opening times: 06:00 - dusk
