Millions of Londoners and tourists visit the eight Royal Parks for free each year. The 5,000 acres of historic parkland provide unparalleled opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of the capital. A simple walk or a picnic in the park, sport, top quality entertainment, community and education projects - all waiting for you.

If it's history and architecture you're after, the parks have hundreds of buildings, statues, and memorials, giving a fascinating insight into London's heritage.

The Royal Parks manages these spaces and almost everything in them. We also conserve the parks to ensure future generations can enjoy them too. We look after:

We also tend a number of other spaces in London, including Victoria Tower Gardens, Brompton Cemetery, the gardens of 10, 11 and 12 Downing Street, and Grosvenor Square Gardens.

Keeping 5,000 acres of urban parkland stocked with trees and other plants is no small task. We have our own nursery to meet the demand and a dedicated team of plantsmen and parks staff to keep the parks looking great all year round.

Part of our remit is to conserve the parks for future generations. We have a Green Housekeeping Committee, which looks at how we can reduce the impact we have on the local and wider environment. We also have an Ecology Officer, who advises on habitat management, sustainability, and biodiversity.

The Royal Parks is an executive agency of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
