Royal Parks


Watch some stunning shots of the Royal Parks as spring and summer unfold, and hear park visitors describe what they love about the parks. 2011 marks 160 years of public enjoyment of the Royal Parks – bringing a breath of fresh air to Londoners since 1851.

This year’s anniversary commemorates the 1851 Crown Lands Act, in which the Crown transferred management of the Royal Parks to the Commissioners of Works and Public Buildings, to create the public open spaces millions of people enjoy today.

The Royal Parks will be celebrating the anniversary with a range of events highlighting its work across heritage, horticulture, cultural activities, sports and leisure. For more information about The Royal Parks visit: www.royalparks.org.uk
