Description

London is as famous for its green spaces as for the historic buildings surrounding them. For "Walking London's Parks and Gardens", wildlife journalist Geoffrey Young specially devised 24 walks around over 30 of the most historic and beautiful parks and gardens that flourish in the capital. His walks range from the Chelsea Physic Garden (the second oldest apothecaries' garden in England) to the 2,500 acres of Richmond Park, former royal hunting forest and London's largest park. He includes beautiful clusters of garden squares that he has imaginatively woven into walks through central London's most graceful districts, such as Bloomsbury and Westminster. He has set each walk in the area's historic context and included detailed information on features and highlights, such as plantings, statuary and architecture. He has also provided the reader with easy-to-follow detailed route map for each walk. Wonderfully illustrated with specially commissioned colour photographs and route maps, the book provides full details of addresses, opening times and the best bars and restaurants to visit en route.
