In June we stayed with our daughter who is living in Putney and were kept very busy going off to visit castles, museums, art galleries and taking in the many sights London has to offer. On many occassions we would cross Putney bridge on the way to the tube and often thought it would be nice to visit the park across the other side of the road.
This was Bishop's Park and on London's hottest day since September last year (all of 26C - cool for someone from Australia) my wife and I decided to go for a walk in the park. After having such a hectic time during our visit this walk was just what we needed. It was so relaxing taking a stroll on the pathway along the Thames river under the lovely trees with their long spreading branches. Taking the opportunity to sit on one of the many benches we watched what activity there was on the river and on the way back to the bridge stopped to watch many young children who were playing in the shallow pools.
We also discovered Fulham Palace which is within the grounds of the park and whilst the gardens are lovely the small museum was closed. We took the opportunity to enjoy coffee & cake in the Drawing Room cafe which is in the palace (palace? more like a very large house) before making our way across the bridge back to Putney.
If you need a relaxing break this is an ideal park to visit.
