Having grown up in East London - myself and my friends spent a lot of time in this park - if it was playing football, in the swing park, to riding bikes, to school sports day - the park has something for everyone. Now being an adult we go there for picnics and chilling with a little kick around for... More

The busy East End of London actually has quite a few small parks and green spaces. At Bethnal Green one of these is Victoria Park which leads into Hackney on the other side. Passing by the canal with interesting house-barges moored, the park is quite a tranquil haven with large pond and fountain: ducks, swans. A good play ground for... More

On a hot summer day this park is a must! The park is so large that there is plenty of peaceful place for everyone. The cafe serves good cakes and craft cider.

This 'East End' park is actually closer to the City of London than any of the more famous Royal Parks further west. It was intended to be a Royal Park, but instead became the first ever public park when it opened early in Queen Victoria's reign. It was certainly needed as the 'East End' had almost no green spaces and... More

Since the huge investment of money to improve the park before the Olympics, much seems to have been done to keep everything well maintained. The lake, pagoda and gardens still look great, especially on a summer's day. And if you've never been, you'll be surprised at the sheer size of this park. Love it.

We took a stroll through this lovely park recently and found it to be a great place for children and families. The park itself is huge and offers a variety of things to do and see however when we were there on an extremely hot and sunny day there was a problem with the splash pool as the area was... More

Victoria Park is a little out of Central London, but it's definitely worth a visit if you're staying for longer. You can walk along Regent's canal from for example Mile End metro station, along Mile End park, Millenium park and up to Victoria park. You will see ducks and squirrels around the canal, people having bbq on their boats, really... More

This place is great for all the mainly. During the summer the splash park and giant slides are a real pull for kids. There is a cafe near the slides. The lake and fountain are great for relaxing and the pavilion cafe by the fountain is great if a little pricey. Parking on Gore Rd in Vic Park village, Hackney,... More

we took our children here many years ago and now have visited with our three gorgeous grandsons. It still remains one of my favourite spaces with great opportunities for play, for ball games. There are lakes with coots etc. Shame the animals are no longer there. The playgrounds are so imaginative now - they loved the water, sand and digger... More

Victoria Park is a little out of Central London, but if you're in the area, it's definitely worth a visit. I walked along Regent's Canal (beautiful must-do) which took me past Mile End Park, Millennium Park, then finally into Victoria Park. It was such a great way to spend a couple of hours and I'd highly recommend this to anyone... More
