There's a definite sense of spring in the air - something we've been looking forward to after the storms that heralded the start of 2014. Because of the uptick in temperature, why not make it your mission to enjoy some of London's royal parks this summer? If they're worthy of recognition by the Windsors, we're sure you'll want to check them out too.

St James' Park

A convenient five minute stroll from Buckingham Palace, the stunningly beautiful St James' Park is a great place to enjoy a picnic. Of particular note is the great lake, home to a plethora of geese, ducks and pelicans. The bird population is fed between 2:30pm and 3pm every day.

Richmond Park

At almost 1,000 hectares, Richmond Park is the largest green space in the capital. It's particularly popular with families thanks to the 650 free-roaming deer who reside here, which certainly make for interesting walking companions. Lose yourself among the emerald glow of the trees - a truly beautiful place.

Regent's Park & Primrose Hill

It's difficult to know what to highlight about Regent's Park and Primrose Hill. Is it the rose gardens, which sport more than 30,000 individual plants of 400 varieties? Is it the dramatic views from the top of Primrose Hill? It's certainly an incredible place, with an outdoor sports facility that should please those who like to get active amid stunning surroundings.
