The best places in Autumn across London

Is there anything more magical than autumn in London? The ‘Plane’ tree was 'discovered' in the mid-17th century by John Tradescant the younger in his famous nursery garden and ark in Vauxhall, but in the 18th century,  the Victorians, taking their cues from the tree lined streets of Paris, planted en-mass across London to reduce pollution over the soot covered capital. Today, we are blessed with the purifying air qualities, but also the beautiful leaves of Autumn. 

A trip to the capital cannot be done without exploring the many parklands or squares adorned by the trees in a full colour. To get your journey started, we’ve put together a list of our favourite places to sit back with a coffee and enjoy the view, all within a few miles radius of The Megaro.

St James’s Park

Dropping in to see the Queen during your visit, then don’t forget to stroll through St James Park, Right in the heart of the city it is a perfect spot for an autumn walk, with the flame-coloured leaves that make this park so magical. Head towards the lake and over the bridge for some jaw-dropping views.

Little Venice and Regent’s Canal

The Regent’s canal which runs from Little Venice to Camden Lock is a must for any urban explorer. Little Venice is arguably one of the best spots to see Autumn in London. Walk along the canal which is lined with Venetian style boats, small coffee shops, trees hanging over the water with dazzling colours. Our advice is to stop along the way, check out the markets in Camden (only a few minutes from The Megaro via tube) Be sure to rug up when walking along the canals, that breeze can be a little chilly

Greenwich Park 

Greenwich is just dripping in history. From the former Royal Navy Officers College, the beautifully restored Cutty Sark to the Royal Observatory, if the views of Canary Wharf on top of the hill or the swathes of autumn colours doesn’t hit you, then snug yourself next to an open fireplace at one of the areas historic pubs, you won’t be disappointed

The Hill Garden

Just a short trip from The Megaro, is this secret garden in London, offering impressive views across Hampstead Heath. While you are in Hampstead Heath be sure so check out the ponds and park. Wander the charming streets of Hampstead and you will stumble upon some of the quirky houses and cottages. 

Richmond Park

Want to know our favourite park in London? You’ve come to the right place. A little over an hour from Kings Cross, Richmond Park is the largest of London’s Royal Parks, located just outside central London and home to many deer and wildlife. It is also home to the Isabella Plantation, a woodland garden with hidden paths and flowing streams.  

Regent’s Park

If Richmond is a little too far for a day out, then something much closer to Kings Cross is Regent’s Park. With over 400 acres of open space, this park is in close proximity to Little Venice. The beauty of fall comes to life at this magnificent park, lined with rows of vividly coloured trees. Along with Regent’s Park some other parks that are worth checking out for Autumn: Green Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Garden and Victoria Park.
