  • Love Wanstead park. It's big and varied, with a wooded area famous for its bluebells. Great long walks by the waterways and a kiosk for refreshments. The park also has toilets.
  • Had a lovely walk in this park. There is a nice waymarked walk which brings you past the cafe where we enjoyed an ice cream in the sunshine. It's hard to believe that you are just a few miles from the centre of London.
