Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens - LondonSaturday, May 24, 2014
Fact: we don't see a huge amount of brilliant sunshine in London. So when the sun does make an appearance it's a great excuse to get to the park, shed some layers and stock up on some vitamin D.
As I've said a few times - Hyde Park is one of my favourite spots in London. In the last five years I've lived just a minutes walk from the place and spent many summer days in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens relaxing with a book, picnicking with friends and running the trails from one end to another.
Every now and then I'll stumble on a new patch of grass I wasn't aware of. Amazing! And that's the charm of this gorgeous park, smack bang in the centre of London - it's so huge that no matter how many thousands of people are enjoying the green space at a single time there's always a new and quiet spot to discover...
