Battersea ParkSituated on the south side of the Thames, facing Chelsea, Battersea Park caters for everyone within its 200-acre space. Firstly, there's lots of water - a lake for boating, ponds for admiring the wildlife, and the Thames along one side for general gazing purposes. Then there's art - the Pump House Gallery has regular exhibitions and there are many sculptures dotted around the park itself. Next comes sport with the Millennium Arena, all-weather pitches, tennis courts and a place to hire bicycles there's no excuse to be lazy. Children get a great deal with their own adventure playground and zoo, while a majestic Peace Pagoda bestows an air of calm and tranquility to the typically action-packed surroundings. Wildlife thrives here with birds, animals and plants happily cohabiting within the grounds.

Best for:
Riverside views, zoos, pagodas, fireworks and boats.
