Clissold ParkA pretty, local park, Clissold is more than worth a visit if you're in the north London area. Free from the crowds that often seep into more central parks, this dainty, 54-acre space offers many excellent park amenities without the accompanying hoards. Eight tennis courts, an animal enclosure, a children's playground, paddling pool, rambling fields, ponds and pond-dipping platform, rose gardens, an organic nature garden, aviary and butterfly tunnel are among the delights. A stunning café - once the local mansion house - is an excellent place for an alfresco drink. Dating back to the 1790s, the Grade II listed building sits on the edge of what's left of the New River, which now teems with terrapins, and offers elegant indoor dining or casual al fresco snacking. Clissold is not as finely manicured as many of London's parks but it has a lovely community feel to it that makes up for the lack of finesse. Besides this is a working park and all the better for it.

Best for:
Terrapins, playgrounds and ponds, butterfly tunnel and outdoor café.
