As well as being a thriving city full of busy streets and famous landmarks, London is also lucky enough to have many parks, gardens and green spaces that are ideal for a family picnic.
The Paddington area is home to the Grand Park London Paddington and the beautiful Queens Gardens, a tranquil and serene green space ideal for taking a few hours out to watch the world go by with a picnic basket full of goodies whilst the kids burn off some energy.
Like most parks and gardens in London, there are plenty of things to see and do with events being held on a regular basis, so it’s worth checking out our London Paddington hotel deals before you arrive so you can extend your time in the capital and discover what else London has to offer.
St. John’s Hyde Park is another quaint and intimate space to enjoy some family time together without having to wait for a table in a restaurant, and with so many of our hotels near Paddington to choose from, you can spend a day at the major tourist attractions and then relax in your room ready to do it all again tomorrow.
The Grand Park London Paddington is well situated for some of London’s most popular parks, as well as benefiting from excellent public transport links that can take you to a wide range of family friendly attractions.
But with major attractions comes a cost, so don’t forget to pack that picnic basket to save yourself a few pounds!
One excellent way of keeping the kids entertained in London is a visit to Sheldon Square, located just a stone’s throw away from several excellent hotels near Paddington.
During the summer months, Sheldon Square plays host to a big screen set up in the park that shows major national sporting events, including the tennis at Wimbledon, so the whole family can enjoy a cost-effective day out in the centre of London – just don’t forget to bring some strawberries and cream along!
If your thinking of taking a trip to London with the family this year, there are plenty of London Paddington hotel deals to be taken advantage of so that you can spend some quality family time together whilst still having a little pocket money left over for a few must-have holiday treats.
And if you feel like leaving the picnic basket at home and leaving the cooking to someone else, there’s a huge variety of street food vendors, ice cream sellers and other tasty treats available in most of London’s parks and gardens so there’s bound to be something for everyone.
So, if you want to experience the wonders of London with your family this year but need a short break away from the hustle and bustle, head to one of London’s many parks and well-maintained green spaces for a little peace and quiet before heading off to explore more of what our wonderful city has to offer.
