    This is another very well maintained park that is accessible to the Underground, or an easy walk from central Westminster.

    The Princess Di "fountain" was beautiful.

    Definitely worth a visit.

    The park is well maintained, safe, with beautiful grounds and flowers.

    Must see if you're visiting London.

    I realize this is probably a great attraction for 9 months of the year. Unfortunately, when you visit before Christmas there is not much to see of the gardens. With that said, the palace was still beautiful in the park setting and we did get to see some Christmas decorations that are not there in the summer.

    When in Greenwich you must go to the park as it is a great place to visit. It’s so well kept, it has the Observatory in there, if you go to the top you get such wonderful views of London snd the surrounding area. It’s great for families, lots of dog walkers and everyone seems to be having a good time. A quick walk from the station.

    Excellent vast area of Open space in the heart of one of the World's most populated cities. Amazing how intact it has been left and ow well maintained it is. I enjoy walking cycling there, although cycling officially it is not allowed , but then again, as a taxpayer, I have my rights and will use them when necessary.

    Holland Park was nearby our home when we lived in London. It is still a very nice place to go. However, the park cafe had changed (re food options and open hours) and not in a good way.

    What a surprise it was coming up this hill, coffee in hand, to be greeted by the most astonishing view. Definitely the best view of a Central Business District I've ever ever seen. Oddly peaceful too.

    Green Park is a park in central London, not far from Buckingham Palace. Green Park is not as well-known as other London parks. In the spring and summer, the flowers bloom. Green Park is quite a pretty sight. Green Park is a good space to wander around. without any pressure.

    What a fantastic playground! I was very impressed to see that parents and children had to go in together. The bathroom facilities were great. My kids enjoyed playing on the pirate ship! Never on a previous trip to London would I have sought out a playground, but with kids, traveling is always different. I'm so thankful for quite areas in busy cities for the littles to get their energy out and have fun!

    Visiting Crystal Palace Park wasn't on my original to-do list while in London. My brother and his GF were in London for a couple days at the same time I was and he wanted to come here to see the dinosaur statues since he's a big dinosaur person. We first saw these dinosaur statues on an old dinosaur VHS tape as kids, so it was cool to actually see them in person. It's pretty cool knowing these sculptures were created in 1854, about 20 years after the first dinosaurs were officially classified. By modern standards, they look nothing like how dinosaurs actually looked like, but knowing it was based off knowledge in the mid 1800s, it's cool to see how people interpreted dinosaurs when they were first discovered. The park itself definitely could use some cleanup and refurbishment, but it was cool to get away from the touristy part of London and see something I had seen as a child on video.

    Busy park with a Victorian legacy. The park is home to many historic artifacts and features and has decorative gardens and wilder natural areas as well as open grass lands. It also hosts a lawn bowls club. Victoria Park is used as a concert venue and hosts many festivals each year.

    We planned a visit to the shopping centre with a bit of a walk, which we had heard was possibly. We seemed to walk for quite a bit until we crossed a bridge and it opened out.
    What a lot of countryside. OK I could often see tall buildings surrounding it. But we walked and walked. Amazing. Were we in London ? We were seriously impressed, and we are country dwellers.
    Some advertising implied eating places in the park. No. The first 2 only did ice cream. The third only sold coffee. Research took us to the Timber Lodge, reviewed elsewhere. But which basically fulfilled our need.
    A gentle wander round and back, and it was time to go home. All very pleasant. Decidedly cold in May.
    Maybe next time there will be time for the shopping centre.

    We had an excellent day at Mudchute Farm, all staff were brilliant aside from one, hence the 4 starts which is such a shame as such credit is due to this brilliant space.

    There is a red head older woman (between 60's - 70's) whose behaviour and conduct I found embarrassing. She is based in the animal holding area. Our visit was a few months back now and she challenged everyone and everything.
    She bullied the younger staff in the animal holding area and was challenging them over small issues in front of customers which caused much embarrassment for staff members. She was incredibly abrupt when I first arrived so much so I nearly turned round and walked away and at the end of the event when we were looking at purchasing some small gifts, she asked we don't pick up the toys and just looked.
    I would like to make my feedback really clear because this impacts both staff and customers. As she's an older (grumpy) woman that's clearly got away for some time with such attitude, she'll bullying the staff and basically pissing off the customers, not the time of behaviours and attitudes I would want in my work place.

    Otherwise, all other staff were so friendly and helpful. The farm is bigger than expected, lots of animals very well looked after and a brilliant day for children (if you avoid certain staff).
