London has more open spaces and green spaces than most major capitals and parks vary considerably in flavor. Of particular interest are Hampstead Heath – a large piece of countryside in a hilly area of the city with breathtaking views of Hampstead tube; Regent Park – A great formal park in Victorian tradition near Baker Street, with an excellent outdoor theater; Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens – a huge open space in the center of the West End; Wimbledon Common – Wild Outfield perfect for cycling, with Picture Perfect “people”; And the myriad of Bloomsbury and Finsbury squares.
It is easy to forget that this is one of the wider and most frequent world, and urban rail systems can easily forget how convenient it is; To go from A to B for the city, there is no faster way (well, maybe the bike or bike is faster but is not reasonable for visitors or very safe!) But using the subway is too you can be losing a lot.
One of the best things in London is the different flavor of neighborhoods and how fast you can move between the areas of very different types – the city and Spitalfields, for example, or Bloomsbury, Mayfair and Soho. If you do your entire underground journey, you forget everything else. OK, so London is a great place but there are plenty of attractions that can easily get in and open your eyes.
