London is as famous for its green spaces as for the historic buildings surrounding them. Walking London,s Parks and Gardens takes you on 24 walks around over 30 of the most historic and beautiful parks and gardens that flourish in the capital.
The walks range from the Chelsea Physic Garden (the second oldest apothecaries, garden in England) to the 2,500 acres of Richmond Park, former royal hunting forest and London,s largest park. It includes beautiful clusters of garden squares that have been imaginatively woven into walks through central London,s most graceful districts, such as Bloomsbury and Westminster.
Each walk is set in the area,s historic context and includes detailed information on features and highlights, such as plantings, statuary and architecture.
Wonderfully illustrated with specially commissioned colour photographs and easy-to-follow route maps, the book provides full details of addresses, opening times and the best bars and restaurants to visit en route.
