London, a capital that loves nature If London is known for its royal palaces, it is also one of the greenest cities! It is ranked number 1 of the most sustainable cities in the world by the IESE Business School, according to human, economic and material criteria, such as gas emission and waste and water management. With its eight royal parks, it shelters true green lungs in its heart. These vast ecological green spaces are wonderful settings for your hikes.

Gardens and Green Park. With its 4000 trees, Serpentine Lake and its rose garden, Hyde Park is a haven for squirrels and birds, and an opportunity to reconnect with nature and animals.

To contemplate a panorama on the Thames and the City, direction Greenwich Park.
