Previously I had only ever visited Victoria Park for music festivals, but lately I have been taking a 12 year-old friend there and we have discovered its full delights. Victoria Park is clean, spacious and full of great activities - we particularly like the Pools Park and the giant slides and exploring those means we haven't yet made it to... More

Lovely east London park. Just as good as Regent's park or Hyde park - just a bit more chilled out and less crowded. If you are a fast on east London, well worth to wander around the area to get a feel for the history as well as just enjoying the lovely park.

Very big green area in the middle of east london. Helps you to forget the fact you are in the inner city and a very built up area. Very beautiful and would reccomend to anyone

I have lived in Tower Hamlets all my life and the park has never looked so good. The park is clean and well kept, planting schemes are amazing and there is something for everyone here. You must pay the park a visit. A real treasure for Tower Hamlets.

This East London Park is one of London's best. It's pretty much a tourist free zone. Far better than the Olympic 'Industrial' Park next door which has more concrete than park. Victoria Park has a great cafe (Pavillion) a big childrens play area, lots of quiet park areas and lots of open space for games. Victoria Park village is good... More

what a beautiful park and the food in the cafe is amazing. Can honestly say best coffee and best breakfast in London in the most beautiful setting. We had Sunday breakfast here some of the best food in London.

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
