Parks, autumn in which is especially magical

The days are getting shorter, the evenings are colder, and the temptation to spend the weekend in the company of the sofa and Netflix is almost impossible to resist. But in London there are places that are most beautiful in fall. Go to the exploration to see this personally and at the same time enjoy, perhaps, the last warm days this year.

Isabella Plantation. This botanical garden is spread over 15 hectares and represents only a part of the big area of Richmond Park - the largest royal park in London. Really, you will be delighted with everything now red-orange colored! Only evergreen azaleas point the way along the clear streams. Walk along the shore of the pond, admire the unusual trees and shrubs scattered around the garden, and behind its gates you can even be fortunate enough to meet the noble deer wandering in silence.

Nunhead Cemetery. Wandering among the ivy-twined statues of angels and crumbling but still magnificent tombstones - it's so...autumnal. The Nunhead Cemetery, located in the south of London, has already become part of history. Sometimes on Sundays there are small excursions there. Perhaps you will also want to know who of the great people found peace here.

Fulham Palace. Enjoy the rustling of flaming red leaves, strolling along the paths of the Fulham Palace garden, in the greenhouse admire the harvest of pumpkins, and then buy some just picked vegetables from the garden to arrange a real autumn feast at home. After all, after a good walk you will get hungry for sure.

Kyoto Gardens. Head to Holland Park. It is on its territory where there are stylized Japanese gardens, the creation of which was sponsored in 1991 by the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, the gardens have changed their look a bit. But the main thing remains: it is a waterfall and a bridge from which you can watch the carp frolicking in the water. Also all this ensemble creates an excellent background for selfie.

Royal Botanic Kew Gardens. In autumn, Kew Gardens look particularly luxurious. So many bright autumn colors around: wild meadows, rare flowers, lush trees - perhaps, here you can stay until the next fall. Besides, now in Shirley Sherwood Gallery there is an exhibition of more than 1 thousand flower garlands, which you must visit. And of course, how not to take a look at Victorian Palm House, to admire tropical plants!

Modern Hall Park. This former deer reserve is an ideal place to spend a day off. Spreading lindens and chestnuts, growing along ancient alleys, will provide a session of color therapy. And if you come here in the early morning, you can plunge into special atmosphere: mysterious haze will float above the wet ground, and the entire sleepy world will belong only to you.

Tower Hamlets Cemetery. Growing at the territory of the abandoned cemetery of the XIX century, this only park in Tower Hamlets has an area of 13 hectares and is home to many species of plants and animals. A great place to take a walk with friends or family on weekends.

St. James's Park. In the central park of London, exemplary foliage reigns. Trees, paths, benches - everything looks amazingly autumnly. And, judging by the posts in Instagram, there is an invasion of charming squirrels now. The central lake can be the background for photos together with pelicans, and going at the bridge you can assess the beautiful view of Buckingham Palace.

Hampstead Heath. Hampstead-Heath looks romantic at any time of the year. But autumn certainly adds charm to it. Slowly stroll around its forests and meadows, and then arrange a small autumn picnic on the grass.
