Picturesque lakes of London

If someone tells you that you can not find beautiful nature in London, invite this person to walk to the magnificent lakes. The beautiful London lakes with rich flora and fauna, the smell of October freshness and beautiful sunsets can be watched endlessly. We offer you autumn entertainment: take a stroll along the picturesque lakes, and then find a cozy place with a fireplace. This is useful for both moral and physical health.

Hampstead Heath. Hampstead Heath is famous for its lakes, where you can swim. This wonderful place especially attracts Londoners on warm days. In cold autumn weather, of course, you will not swim, but lovers of beautiful ponds will not be confused by this - you can just take a walk and breathe fresh air.

Victoria Park. Here, there are not only 86.18 hectares of land, but also a beautiful lake, where you can go boating. In 2014, according to the results of voting, Victoria Park was recognized as the most favorite park of Londoners. Since then, such votes have not been held, so that it still retains the status of champion.

Hyde Park. In the summer it is just wonderful here: you can go boating, swimming and enjoy the nature. In the meantime, let's just take a walk. And look at in Serpentine Galleries, to get acquainted with the works of modern architects and admire the works of art.

Regent's Park. In Regent's Park there are always many possibilities. It is good to do sports here, and in summer - to watch performances in the theater in the open air. There is also a separate lake for children in the park, along which you can sail on boats.

Battersea Park. This lake is so picturesque that it is depicted on postcards. There are many plants and animals in the vicinity. Battersea Park - a great place for walking at any time of the year.

Greenwich Park. It is difficult to call it a lake, but Greenwich Park is a very good place for walking. Here is the Royal Observatory and the famous Greenwich Meridian. And also there is a beautiful view of the city.

St. James's Park. The lake in St. James's Park is the habitat of various birds. Among them there are even pelicans, you can watch how they are fed every day from 14:00 to 15:00. The park is located in the heart of London, so you can admire Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the London Eye and the Horse Guards parade.

Alexandra Palace Boating Lake. Start your boat (here there are boats in the form of dragons, swans, pelicans) and take your friends on this wonderful lake. And in Lakeside Cafe you can have a snack and admire the beautiful nature.

Crystal Palace Park. The only thing that lacks Crystal Palace Park is missing - a castle. But here there is a beautiful lake where you can fish (if you are lucky even to catch a gold fish). Do not get lost in the mysterious labyrinth and look at the cult dinosaurs that were created with the help of the founder of the Natural History Museum.

Hollow Ponds. This place is farther than many of London's central parks, but do not spare time for the journey: it is worth of it. Hollow Ponds with ancient forest Epping is an excellent occasion to take a boat and enjoy the wildlife.

Ruislip Lido. Ruislip Lido is a 24 hectare lake surrounded by sandy beaches. In the autumn, of course, you will not sunbathe, but why not to walk with close people and not to talk about everything in the world? A wonderful place, helping to abstract of the city fuss.
