Westminster Ponds has many different trails and ponds and is a great place for bird watching and looking for wildlife. There are hundreds of plant species. You can walk for hours and hours through Westminster Ponds.

I've lived in London for nearly 20 years now and I'm still shocked to hear lifelong Londoners say they have never been to the Ponds, or don't know where it is. This is truly a gem right in the heart of the city that should...More
