nothing beats a walk to Victoria park on a Sunday. It is a very chilled and unassuming park, right in the heart of East London. when it was first opened it was known as the 'lungs of East London'. There is something for everyone, from children, to dog lovers and fitness fanatics and the park is always buzzing with activities.... More

Victoria park is pretty, BBQ areas, fountains and play parks. Perfect place for a picnic. One end is next to broad road market with yum street food. The park even has toilets 😃

Must visit Vikky park with family, it is very large and has a pond which you can take a paddling boat out on. Barbecues are also acceptable - provided you clean up after yourselves!

There are 3 parks right around the same area (2 might be connected I'm not sure). This one is very nice, you get a lot of different people, some more upscale from the West side, and some shady characters from the East side, if you like people watching this is the place to go. They have a skate park and... More

We visited Victoria Park on Bank Holiday Saturday in early May. The sun was shining and the park was full of families. The park has just has an enormous 'refurbishment' and is definately one of the best city parks I have ever visited. We had tea at the lakeside pavillion while we watched the baby ducks swim after their mothers.... More

On a sunny day Victoria park is filled with joggers, mothers pushing prams and kids on skateboards. A great asset to East London and in my opinion one of London's nicest parks. There are two locations to buy food and use the bathroom, lakes doted around and beautiful flowers and trees.

Victoria Park is easily the nicest park in London. it is such a large space and relatively un-crowded when compared to Hyde Park and Regents Park. There are so many places to just sit down and relax. the huge lake has got many bird species, with ducks and swans to feed. The eastern part of the park is relatively unvisited... More

Right in the heart of the East End, full of history, and now completely revamped thanks to lottery money and the 2012 Olympics, it has two beautiful kids play areas, lakes, ducks and swans aplenty, and the fabulous Pavilion cafe which serves the best coffee- and I mean the best anywhere. The park is a big green lung, with waterways,... More
