Favourite Royal Parks in London

My favourite royal parks Regents Park and Kensington Palace Gardens. They are so beautifully landscaped. Name your favourite royal parks in London.

Surprised no one has answered this.

Agree with your two.

Is Holland park a royal park?

Well, I like it anyway even if it's not; it's small enough to be intimate and it has lots of nooks and crannies to explore and art shows at the Ice House.

We'll be visiting in January, so I was wondering if the parks are frequented at all at that time of the year. Are there any events in the parks during the winter months?

Any input you can provide would be appreciated!

Richmond Park every time - a well groomed lawn just doesn't do it for me!

Brompton Cemetary is a royal park. Interesting.

I love Brompton cemetary; it's old, it's decrepit, it's overgrown, it's full of fascinating gothick mausoleums and grave stones; Emiline Pankhurst is buried there.

It's a lovely place to walk on a summer's day ( or a winter's day).

I love feeding the squirrels in front of The Orangery in Kensington Gardens (bag of shelled, roasted peanuts 1 GBP at convenience stores on Kensington High Street).

The sunken garden (with Coot nest and baby chicks) is right there and a beautiful, tiered formal garden when just planted.

The cafe on the Serpentine in Hyde Park and the "Inn the Park" bistro in St.James park are lovely spots to hang out and watch the world -- or the birds -- go by.

I will never get tired of stopping by Speakers' Corner on Sunday mornings.

The Queen Mother's Gate in Hyde Park is a delight.

The restored Albert's Memorial across from the Royal Albert Hall is spectacular both day and night.

And just seeing the infinite number of ways in which Londoners use the parks on summer weekends is wonderful...

Hallo. We are planning a trip to Richmond. Does anyone know the exact address of the Wick House on Richmond Hill and whether there is street parking nearby? Thank you for your assistance.
