With the storms that have battered much of the UK over the past month or so now finally subsiding, it’s time to start looking ahead to spring, and what better way to celebrate the end of winter than with a trip to London.
Indeed, no other major capital city in the world contains as much green space as London, so visiting this world famous tourist destination really is guaranteed to put a spring in your step.
Anyone who has never visited the city will most likely be of the impression that the only way to get around is to spend insufferable amounts of time either sitting in traffic jams or on a cramped underground train, although in reality that simply isn’t the case, as London is one of the best places in the country for walking.
Not only is there loads of stunning scenery to take in as you stroll along, but many of the world’s most iconic landmarks are blended seamlessly into the picture too – so this truly is a preferable option to rambling in a field somewhere.
For example, you could choose to take a leisurely walk along the Regents Canal, beginning at the vibrant Camden Lock and passing by the aviary of London Zoo and the beautiful Primrose Hill. If joining the canal further east, meanwhile, you could take in the sights of Victoria Park or even Broadway Market if you happen to be around on a Saturday.
Elsewhere, Hyde Park is another fantastic spot for a stroll, and is home to some stunning features such as the idyllic Serpentine boating lake and Kensington Gardens, where the floral arrangements are always a treat for the eyes.
Alternatively, a gander along the South Bank always makes for a highly enjoyable day, and is a great way to experience the vibrant culture that London has to offer.
