London must be one of the greenest cities in the world, if not the greenest! If you have to be in the city on a warm spring or summer day, then it's the nicest place to be.

The Royal Parks are beautifully maintained, and on sunny days you will find tourists and Londoners chilled and relaxed, or cycling or skating or just sitting in a deck chair eating icecream and soaking up the sun!

Hyde Park also has the Serptentine where it's possible to hire boats for a lovely lazy paddle about. All the parks have places to get refreshments (a little expensive but this is central London). The flower beds change according to the season but in Spring they are particularly colourful with all the daffs and tulips around!

In some of the parks cycling and skating is prohibited and there are plenty of Park Officials and police around to make sure this is enforced!

It is also possible to hire deck chairs - 1.50 for 2 hours.

Check the website for loads of history and info about London's Royal Parks.
