Okay, so this past month I’ve had a few problems with my web host meaning I haven’t been able to post anything. However, it is all sorted out now for the most part, and so here is a little London must-see post.
One of my favourite places in London is Richmond Park. It feels unlike any other public park in the city, and isn’t just a patch of green within the hustle and bustle of the capital – it actually (almost) feels a little like the countryside.
This may be to do with the fact that it is the biggest royal park in London, or the fact that you will almost definitely encounter deer on every walk around the park. Either way, its beauty is outstanding and I more than recommend a visit.
I feel that posting this right now is so relevant because I recently came back to London full time and I am lucky to be living so close to the park. Something I intend to do from now on is spend more time here!
It is much busier on a weekend, and so I do recommend visiting on a weekday if you’re after some peace and quiet without the nuisance of cars; unless you’re one of those people who like to people watch.
The park is so huge I have never been around the whole thing myself, and there are so many places inside I am yet to see. Isabellas Plantation is definitely one I have actually tried (and failed, doh) to find in the park because in the summer all of the flowers are in bloom and it is apparently one of the most beautiful places.
However, in the autumn and winter the mornings at Richmond Park are just as magical. It is well known for being misty here in the mornings, and with the dotted trees, long grass and deer the place looks absolutely incredible on a misty morning.
Thanks for reading – and just a quick update, I am also currently having problems with spam comments (its at about 52,848 right now…) but I’m getting that fixed asap so I will try and approve every comment I can that is genuine. Also, more interesting posts are coming soon so watch this space!
