Style   From the grass-covered Anglo-Saxon burial mounds in Greenwich Park to the colossal marble and bronze sculptures of the Queen Victoria Memorial on the edge of The Green Park.
Artistic value   From celebrated works of art, such as the Diana Fountain in Bushy Park, to simple structures, such as the bench in Richmond Park that plays music by the rock star, Ian Dury.
