Walking Tours in the Parks

Walking tourDiscover the hidden secrets of London’s historic Royal Parks on a Royal Parks Walking Tour.

From an underground river running beneath Hyde Park to a hidden hollow tree in Kensington Gardens, known to be the annual nesting site of tawny owls, there is so much to discover!

Our walking tours let you experience the Royal Parks from a whole new perspective - you'll learn more, see more, discover more and experience more than you ever thought possible.

Join us as day breaks to experience the joy of being surrounded by the dawn chorus or come and meet Hyde Park’s native bats during a wonderful chance to walk in the park at night. If history is more your thing, discover the important role that Hyde Park played in the World Wars or visit the site which inspired J.M. Barrie to write the famous Peter Pan stories.

What other walkers say...

I loved the interesting pieces of information on how trees/the environment have adapted and the relationships of the insect & bird species.

I enjoyed all of it! The fascinating information about Peter Pan & JM Barrie, but also feeding the birds on my hand!
