London is a surprisingly green city – roughly 45 per cent of Greater London is green space. Most of the green space is parks, commons and heaths, but there is a large number of gardens of all different styles and sizes.
Hyde Park, Regent's Park, Green Park and St James's Park are the large green spaces of Central London, however for a more natural setting, head for Hampstead Heath for great views of the capital.
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) stages a series of London flower shows, each with its own distinct character to bring horticulture to a wider audience as possible.The Chelsea and Hampton Court Flowers shows are world famous and very popular.
