VlogmasBlogmas: Date Night Winter Walks in London


When living in the bustling city of London, it's easy to think you need to escape the city to get some green grass and breathtaking views. But actually the truth is, there is a lot of green space around. It's much debated about how much of London is green space, but 47%, or 62%, which ever you choose to believe, is a lot!

That said, there is many a winter walk to be had, and here are the one's which we think are best...

Barbican Gardens

One for when the weather lets you down, as it is indoors. It is a conservatory housing tropical plants, exotic fish, and great Instagram opportunities. It's a great way to spend a lazy Sunday, only problem being it is only open on a Sunday. So keep it in mind and make a visit perhaps just before or following a good Sunday lunch.

Richmond Park

If you're lucking for wildlife, then this is the place to come. With 144 species of birds, 400 types of fungi, 139 spider species, 750 butterfly and moth species and over 1350 beetle species, you are sure to catch some sights that you won't get anywhere else in London. But what it is best known for are the 600 deers that freely roam the park. They play a great role in the Nature Reserve's history and prove a top attraction for wildlife lovers.

Holland Park Kyoto Gardens

A stone's throw from Central London, Holland Park boasts the peaceful Kyoto Gardens, which commemorates the relationship between Japan and the UK. The waterfalls, fish and peacocks which roam the garden will far remove you from the hectic city and will drop you in a new world of tranquility.
