Living in London as a West Country girl I thoroughly miss the expanses of fields and farms - even just having a garden! I do really enjoy living in London for now though, and although we don't have a garden with our little flat there are plenty of lovely green spaces in and around London, which I love taking advantage of!
With the Blogger Picnic in the Park coming up (there's a couple of spaces left by the way so if you're in London or you fancy a day trip to London you should join us it's going to be so cute, we have the best day planned) I've been a little bit excited and consequently I've found myself getting out to the parks, squares and things a lot more, here are some of my faves:
Richmond Park and Bushy Park
Both quite similar, quite near to each other and also both quite near me which is handy, cause they're really quite lovely. Richmond Park is one of the biggest and most beautiful gems of London, I don't go enough really considering how near to me it is. It's got views, little flower gardens, beautiful trees, hills, lakes, deer, everything you'd want from a park. Bushy Park is nearer to me so I get there a little more often and it's equally stunning to be honest, quite a similar look and feel to Richmond Park, with the deer etc but it's got Hampton Court Palace within it too! They're both gorgeous, perfect for a walk or a cycle, I'm desperate to get a new bike so I can get to them both more (if anyone near London has one they want to sell to me on the cheap let me know cause I really want one soo bad).
Probably my favourite of them all! I absolutely love Kew Garden's it's stunning! I went there for the first time last summer when I'd first moved up to London and my parents and grandparents came to visit for a weekend we spent the day there and we all loved it, I've been a couple of times since - I'd go more but you do have to pay (booo) but it is worth it so I'd really recommend going and taking a little picnic or something for a lovely little afternoon! If you do go, buy your tickets on line, it'll save you queuing - last time I went I actually bought the tickets online from the queue then I was like BYEEE BITCHES and strolled straight in.
