Moving to London and Its Rich Urban Wildlife, part 2

posted: 17th June 2018

In the first part of our two-part series, we introduced you to some of the most loved wild animals that can be found living in the big city. This second part is orientated towards all who dream of a London house removal in the heart of the busy capital and not losing the sense of Mother Nature. We will provide you with valuable information about London’s most famous parks, where you can relax and closely observe Britain’s wildlife.

Parks to Search for When Choosing a Place to Remove in London

Bench in a London park

When you are searching for the ideal place to relocate especially if you have children, one of the most important things is the close proximity to parks and playgrounds. And what a better park than one owned by the Queen herself. London has eight Royal parks that were originally a property of the monarchy of the United Kingdom and were strictly for the use of the royal family. After the excessive urbanisation of the capital left its citizens with almost no green spaces in 1851 the royal lands were declared public and nowadays everybody can visit them.
The price of the properties is quite high near the former royal estates, but fear not London house movers, in the past years many smaller parks opened doors all over the capital.

 

Hampstead Heath
Located only six kilometres from Trafalgar square Hampstead Heath is a wildlife oasis. The 320-hectare park provides to its visitors the opportunity to observe wild herds of muntjac deer, take pictures of the funny parakeets and swim along beautiful aquatic birds like the great crested grebes. There are two swimming ponds in Hampstead Heath and if you are not afraid of the little chilly water we invite you to take a dip. There is a lot for the newly moved wildlife-lover in the park – over 180 species of birds, foxes, snakes, hedgehogs, 25 species of butterflies, 18 species of dragonfly and damselfly and many more.

 

Regent’s Park
Regent’s Park is one of the eight Royal parks and it is named after the Prince Regent who later became King George IV. It is situated between the City of Westminster and the London Borough of Camden. The park contains Regent’s University London, Queen Mary’s Rose Gardens, an open theatre and the London Zoo. It is the perfect place to spend the weekend after an exhausting week of packing and house moving in London. Do not forget your golf clubs because the park can also offer you a relaxing day at the royal golf course.

Regent’s Park is most famous for its amazing variety of waterfowl. Its ponds are home to 650 birds from all corners of the world. You can also spot hedgehogs, foxes, grey squirrels and wood mice. In addition, the Royal Park is inhabited by five different species of bats: Common and Soprano Pipistrelle, Noctule, Serotine and Daubenton’s bats.

 

Richmond ParkLake in Richmond park in London
The largest of the eight Royal parks was created by King Charles I to serve as a deer park. Nowadays Richmond park is of key importance for the wildlife conservation, it is a national nature reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a European Special Area of Conservation. The park is located in the London Borough of Richmond upon the Thames, in the southwest part of the capital. There are approximately 300 Red Deer and 350 fallow deer living freely in the park. In addition, you can find around 144 different bird species, a large population of bats and close to 2000 species of butterflies, moths, beetles, and spiders.

 

Lee Valley Regional Park
Lee Valley Regional Park is a 42-kilometre linear park located along the River Lee and it is the only park shared between London, Essex, and Hertfordshire. Half of the park used to be part of the Olympic park build to host for the 2012 Summer Olympics and the 2012 Summer Paralympics. If you are a sport and wildlife enthusiast, this is the right place for you.

This piece of green heaven provides a home to many wild animals including 200 species of birds and over half of UK’s species of dragonflies. Water voles, foxes, weasels and another 30 different species of mammals can be found in the park.

 

Greenwich Park
Last but not least on our list is Greenwich Park, one of the oldest Royal Parks, located in southeast London. During the 2012 Summer Olympics, the park hosted the riding and running parts of the modern pentathlon as well as the Olympic equestrian. This is an enchanting place, and you will not make a mistake if you relocate near its grounds.

Established in 1433 as a hunting estate, Greenwich Park is still a home to Red and Fallow Deer. For all, you bird lovers out there the park provides great opportunities for bird watching. Here you can spot up to 90 different species such as tawny owls, thrushes, waterfowls, and warblers.

Moving to London and Becoming a Responsible Citizen of the Capital

No matter where you relocate from the moment your house moving to London is over you will become a part of one of Europe’s biggest cities. You will have the possibility to join the hundreds of Londoners who help preserve the city’s wildlife, there are many places that you can begin from. In the end, we wish to leave you with a positive attitude towards the urban ecosystem and desire to take part in the many campaigns launched across London.
