EXPLORING THE ROYAL PARKS IN LONDON – BUSHY PARK PHOTO DIARY

The UK is famous for its monarchs, its beautiful villages and its many manor houses and castles. Often these magnificent properties came with lots of acres of land that were used for different purposes.

Around London, many famous palaces are still in use and many of them are open to the public for viewings and visits.

Bushy Park, located just on the outskirts of London in the Royal Borough of Richmond, is one of my local parks and bursts with history, wildlife and beautiful scenery.

You can easily spend an entire day in Bushy Park without getting board and feeling refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards.

Bushy Park became a Royal Park back in 1529 when it was given or better handed over to King Henry VIII along with Hampton Court palace from Cardinal Wolsey.

Back in the days it was used as hunting grounds and during World War I and II troops were stationed there and camps were erected.

Today, the park is open to the public for recreational purposes. Still, traces of its history can be found all over the park.

With no further ado, please enjoy this photo diary of Bushy Park!
