There is no better place to soak in the famous London summer than the famous London parks. Here is a list of my favorite London parks to visit when in London.
Hampstead Heath is a park that has fields for you to run, ponds for you to swim and woods for you to hide in. It provides a great view of the city of London that brings visitors back again and again. Being a part of North London it provides the locals a chance to be with nature while still experiencing the hustle and bustle of being in a jungle of concrete. It is a perfect spot for flying kites and is dotted with pubs around the edges of the park.
