Millions of Londoners and tourists visit the eight Royal Parks for free each year. The 5,000 acres of historic parkland provide unparalleled opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of the capital. A simple walk or a picnic in the park, sport, top quality entertainment, community and education projects - all waiting for you.

If it's history and architecture you're after, the Parks have hundreds of buildings, statues, and memorials, giving a fascinating insight into London's heritage.

The Royal Parks manages these spaces and almost everything in them. We also conserve the Parks to ensure future generations can enjoy them too. We look after:

•Bushy Park
•The Green Park
•Greenwich Park
•Hyde Park
•Kensington Gardens
•The Regent's Park and Primrose Hill
•Richmond Park
•St James's Park

We look after eight of London’s largest open spaces; Hyde, The Green, Richmond, Greenwich, St James’s, Bushy and The Regent’s Parks, and Kensington Gardens. We also manage other important open spaces in the capital including Grosvenor Square Garden, Brompton Cemetery, Victoria Tower Gardens, Canning Green and Poet’s Corner.

The parks are owned by the Crown with their responsibility resting with the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The Royal Parks charity manages the parks on behalf of the government.
