Green Spaces Great For Some R&R In East London
Searching for a quiet spot in East London to blow off some steam? We know how stressful the working week can get, especially if they’re jammed pack with back-to-back meetings. It’s important for us to take a moment to unwind and decompress so that we can return to the office feeling refreshed and ready to tackle any challenge that comes our way.
Luckily, East London is abound with glorious green spaces and nature trails; allowing city dwellers to take time out for themselves, traipse around and feel anew.
Starting point Finsbury Park
This walk is for those who have more time on their hands and who wish to traipse across North East London to North London at a leisurely pace. The trail is known for being the longest Linear Nature Reserve in London; connecting Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace. The walk is 4km long, and offers a wildlife trail at the Highgate End. It’s a fantastic escape for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of London’s busy urban streets.
If your offices are based in Hackney or Hackney Wick, you will undoubtably know all about the hidden gems Victoria Park offers. But for those new to the area, the green space is the oldest purpose-built public park opened by Queen Victoria in 1845. The park has beautiful lakes and fountains, as well as brilliant tennis courts and a skatepark. There’s a café that’s dotted right at the centre of the park, so you can languorously sip on a latte whilst absorbing in the tranquil green surroundings.
QUEEN ELIZABETH OLYMPIC PARK
Neighbouring Victoria Park, sits the Olympic Park that was created for the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. The park spans across 560 acres, with parklands, waterways and playgrounds enveloping the area. City dwellers flock to the park to enjoy its trails, tennis centres, man-made beach and fountains. Sit down, rest your feet, pull out a book, let your face feel the warmth of the (fleeting) English sun, and you’ll unwind in a matter of seconds here.
