Winter walks in London and the South East 

Escape the high street, burn off some festive calories, and enjoy views of the South Downs, the woods of the Surrey Hills or many of the parks and gardens we look after. Afterwards, warm up with something hot.

Winter gardens in London and the South East 

You might think of gardens being a spring or summer thing, but there's still plenty to see in our gardens across the South East this winter. From snowdrops at Stowe in Buckinghamshire, to aconites at Polesden Lacey in Surrey and brightly coloured dogwood at Mottisfont in Hampshire.
