One of our favourite places to hike in the city. There are a few trails to choose from and all are easy. Winter or summer there's lots of nature to absorb.

Westminster Ponds has many different trails and ponds and is a great place for bird watching and looking for wildlife. There are hundreds of plant species. You can walk for hours and hours through Westminster Ponds.

good walking trails inside London makes you forget where you are - well maintained just be careful after it rains as it can get muddy

I always love going there. Nice trails, breathtaking in every season. I love the winter walks especially, because not too busy.
