Waterlow ParkOne of our favourites, this beautiful park occupies a dramatic sloping site overlooking the city and was given to Londoners by Sir Sidney Waterlow as a 'garden for the gardenless'. Retaining a secret garden charm with tree-lined walkways and ponds on different levels, it’s one of London’s finest landscaped parks. It’s amazing to think they managed to fit some tennis courts into Waterlow Park but it's such a lovely spot for a game. The six immaculately kept courts have been attractively built into the hill. Take a picnic, play a set or two then catch a few rays in the park after. It’s absolutely idyllic.
