Magic places where you fall in love with London again

London is sometimes like a guy with whom you have been together for a long time. Yes, of course you love him. Yes, you will never break up, but sometimes he just makes you sick. When the view from the "Shard" no longer causes butterflies in your stomach, and the head is spinning mostly from drinks, it is time to look again at your favorite city and refresh the wonderful feelings.

Painshill Park, Kingston. In 1981, the charity organization undertook to restore the garden of the 18th century. This garden was created by Noble Sir Hamilton to escape from routine, to find shelter and inspiration in the shade of trees, the intricacies of vines, mysterious bushes and in the contemplation of water. The crystal grotto, dating from 1760, looks just magical, as if you were in another world. And now remember that you are still in London, and be proud of it.

London Wetland Center, Barnes. The most beautiful birds can be seen in the London Wetland Center. It is an oasis in the middle of the city where wildlife reigns, and this miracle is located just 10 minutes from Hammersmith. Incredible, right? With all these ducks and other birds, the London Wetland Center allows you to plunge into the nature world wherever you are.

Highgate Cemetery, Highgate. About 170,000 people are buried in approximately 53,000 graves at one of the largest Victorian cemeteries in London. It would seem, why anyone would be willing to go there, at the dark, gloomy, creepy, and damp place. But in this cemetery you can find the wonders of architecture, including the Victorian Chapels, the Lebanon Circle and the Egyptian Avenue. A very romantic place to walk in the evening on Saturday. If you are lucky, you can track down a bat or open a hunting season for vampires.

Horniman Museum and Gardens, Forest Hill. The Horniman Museum has an amazing collection and even an aquarium. Only here you can see a grotesque mermaid, which resembles a mix between a monkey and a fish. Is this monster real? The museum has answers not only to this question.

Petersham Nurseries, St Margarets. If you want to drink coffee with a slice of homemade carrot or nut pie, then The Tearoom at Petersham Nurseries is one of the most idyllic places in London for this idea. Take a walk in the fancy garden, and you will realize that you live in a fairy tale.

Hill Gardens and Pergola, Hampstead. These blossoming gazebos and garden structures were created in the early 1900s, but today this place is not so glamorous, parties are not held here, and this is for the best. Now here calm and cozy atmosphere reigns, which gives warmth and harmony.
