Rural London

Rural London was published in May 2017 by Michael O’Mara. They say:

London is a wonderful city, but sometimes the hustle and bustle, noise and grime, can get too much and you feel the need for some peace and quiet, clean air and nature. But there’s no need to flee to the countryside, as London has so many surprisingly ‘rural’ areas and activities to offer.

With everything from beautiful gardens and country walks, to cosy pubs and nature reserves, Rural London will help you to discover a very unexpected side of the capital city. Discover the best farmers markets, watch some Morris dancing and visit a country show. Take a stroll around London’s villages, go bird-spotting and take some time out in a beautiful park.”

“I was really impressed with how many of the places listed I’d never heard of – what about seeing herons at the Greenwich Peninsula Ecology park, or learning woodworking at the Green Wood Guild in Stepney?” The Riverside Way
