Top 5 Parks Near Old Street

We're improving upon our London Relocation Guides - our first blog detailing cool things near our office was our Top 10 Restaurants Near Old Street list.

Since we've had such a spate of good weather here in London we thought we better hurry & share the best parks nearby before the weather takes a turn for the worse again. So grab a picnic lunch & an umbrella -just in case- and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.

St Luke’s Church & Gardens - A great place for some al fresco dining, you can spot the hard workers of the silicon roundabout lounging here for their afternoon lunch often. A nice functional bit of greenery to soak up the sun in the city.

Finsbury Square - A lovely and well maintained city garden, visitors can relax in the grass and smell the roses throughout the square. Jazz concerts occasionally play, and there is a long bit of bowling green if that’s something you’re interested in!

King Square Gardens - A more family oriented park, the younger members of your traveling band will find lots of fun things to do here. A family park in London will include a sandpit, a children’s roundabout, water fun for the summer, and plenty of slides & swings. Great place to let the kids wear down their energy in the late afternoon!

Shoreditch Park - A relaxing space a little north of Old Street that has been awarded the Green Flag award for outstanding green spaces in England. The park hosts a giant boulder for climbing, a beach volleyball court, various sports pitches, and even an ampitheatre! One of the bigger & more varied parks in the area, it comes highly recommended.

Hoxton Square - Thought to be one of the oldest garden squares in London, Hoxton Square is supported by lots of history, a soft bed of grass, and surrounding restaurants and bars. A great place to relax and eat outside, it’s not necessarily as busy as some of the other parks.
