Explore London’s ‘green lung’

Close to London is a family-friendly, nature-lovers’ paradise, the urban oasis Lee Valley Regional Park

Fresh air and affordable fun in a luscious green space is closer to London’s East End than you may think.

Stretching 26 miles and sprawling 10,000 acres, Lee Valley Regional Park dips in and out of Greater London, Essex and Hertfordshire, all the way down to the River Thames. And there’s exploring to be done – whether it’s for the kids, for free or for your own health – as our wild climate gives way to the spring and summer rays.

Watch the highest level British canoe slalom experts this Easter or sample one of the many green spaces and keep a record of what species you see!

Kids can create a ‘hedgehog highway’ or partake in a Scavenger hunt, while adults can delve more into the extensive ‘What’s On’ list for inspiration.  

Lee Valley’s website is jam-packed full of information while over on social media you can sample more of the regional park’s many wonderful sights, whether via Twitter | Facebook | YouTube | Instagram
