Bushy Park London

I am very fortunate to live in a lovely part of London…I might add in a modest, one bedroom flat, however the area is fabulous allowing for the best of all worlds.   

This photograph (not mine) was taken in Bushy Park this past week….

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that Hampton Court Palace was just five minutes from where I live.   Bushy Park, sits immediately north of the Palace andy in the 16th century it was King Henry VIII’s deer hunting ground.    

The roaming herds of Red and Fallow deer that populate the park today are ancestors of the deer that Henry hunted.

Bushy Park is the second largest of London’s eight Royal Parks, and I for one am so grateful for these beautiful places that are protected by the Crown.     

Living in London, or visiting the Capital can sometimes be overwhelming, and so to enjoy and visit these Parks is indeed a respite.

Covering 1,099 acres, Bushy Park can be accessed from Kingston, Teddington and Hampton….On the Hampton side, there is a heated swim pool that is open 12 months of the year, and the park has lakes, a river water gardens, meadows and so much more.

For visitors to London, you can take the train from London Waterloo to Kingston, Teddington or Hampton.   There are also plenty of buses from Kingston to Hampton Court Palace, and it’s all good walking country. 

I wish everyone a beautiful weekend.     

A Bientôt

    What a gorgeous post, I always love looking at deer. Now here’s the thing, I’ve never been there and didn’t even know Bushy park had deer, how crazy is that. Next time I’m up for a weekend I’ll go visit for sure.
    How lovely to have such a place close by, it must be such a treat after the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s strange how green spaces can be found isn’t it….xxx
