The Camley Street Natural Park (run by London Wildlife Trust) is situated next to the Regent’s Canal and only a very short walk (5 to 10 minutes) from St Pancras and Kings’ Cross Stations. The entrance to the park is clearly visible when arriving by train (from the North) into St Pancras (Thameslink excluded as is underground at that point).... More

The garden was a lovely space, to walk through for a short space of time, would have spend more time!

This lovely little park is sandwiched between road, canal and rail and deserves your support to keep it going. Drinks and snacks are served but the place has a very relaxed and casual vibe to it. Wandering through the high grasses, bamboo and past ponds is a quiet oasis . Sitting chatting to the people who work there over a... More

Traveled some distance to visit the park and were disappointed. A sign directed us to sign in at the Information centre, which was lacking in any information. Two ladies who we assumed to be staff were chatting and drinking tea but they avoided making eye contact or speaking to us. There was a room with some sort of class or... More

We decided to call in after reading the reviews and were still surprised how amazing this small piece of unspoilt nature is. As we approached the entrance the high speed Javelin train went past on it’s way to the Olympic Park. Once through the gates it was like entering the mythical world of Lost Horizon - a tiny enchanted paradise.... More

We called in here on a rainy day to eat a picnic under the tent. What a pleasant surprise we had. We watched a wren building its nest, walked along the bank of the canal, checked out the Beehives, watched coots nesting, mallards shepherding their young, a heron standing ready for a meal. This was a welcome break from the... More

If you need a break from museums and the wonderful bustle and noise of London take yourself fro St Pancras and Kings Cross around to this fantastic area of plants and water created from a wasteland it is a truly amazing restful spot in central London.

Just a lovely little oasis of calm and beauty - you could sit and chill or have a snack. The staff member who welcomed us was really pleasant and it would do your soul good to enjoy a bit of nature - and good nature - in this small park.

My grandchildren called this place 'awesome'. It is a magical oasis is the middle of Kings Cross, where you can go pond dipping, watch wildlife, run and play in safety. It is right alongside the canal with narrow boats, ducks, geese and moorhens. There is a visitors centre with a small cafe and toilets. On a sunny April day I... More

This is a wonder, a tiny strip of land next to the Regent's Canal which has been lovingly turned into a nature reserve, with several different type of habitat, including a pond and mini flower meadow. I spotted a dunnock (!) , and some rather large coots. One of the managers told me they even have reed warblers...the London Wildlife... More
