London is full of beautiful parks and gardens. One cannot go to London without visiting a few of them. A really nice option for taking in some natural beauty in London, is the Chelsea Physic Garden. This garden specializes in plants and herbs that have been used for healing by humans. The garden was a private enterprise until 1983, when it registered as a charity and opened it’s doors to the public.

This is a wonderful option to take in some nature while you are visting London because it is located in the heart of London. There are over 5,000 different edible or medicinal plants grown in the garden.  Some other highlights include, the largest fruiting olive tree in Britain, Eucalyptus trees and they even grow grapefruit. They have the world’s most northernly growing grapefruit, as it is not native to Britain.

This is a wonderful outing after a day of museums or other indoor attractions. This is also a family friendly attraction that allows little ones to stretch their legs. If you are planning to visit in the middle of the day why not take a picnic lunch?
