Wander along Regent's Canal and where there was once an old coal yard, you'll now find Camley Street Natural Park. An urban nature reserve running by the railway, the park is managed by the London Wildlife Trust and is home to all sorts of wildlife from small birds and butterflies to amphibians. With a floating observation platform and plenty of picnic spots, we suggest grabbing a blanket, some food and the family and making a day of it.

This place is amazing I have been coming here for over 15 years, I'm glad it's still going strong with all the redevelopment going on around it. If you have kids bring them along I'm sure they'll love it more
You lucky lucky people
You're lucky I'm so nice and telling you about a hidden gem in the heart of London. A place to go when you thought you'd seen it all. Somewhere to escape and to learn. Somewhere where children can look a pond bugs and adults can (probably) kiss.
We were on an anti tourist walk on a Saturday in and around Camden mostly because I'm a mild masochist who likes a challenge.... more
Lovely spot of nature near the St. Pancras area. I fell in love with the little romantic paths & ponds. You don't feel like being in the gray city anymore when you're inside. It's small, yet there are so many things to see! Birds look really happy in there. more
