Stepping off the train at King’s Cross you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’re miles away from any open space or wildlife. However just a short walk away, up St Pancras Road you’ll discover Camley Street Natural Park, a unique two acres of wild green space next to the Regent ’s Canal. The industrial legacy of the canal gave birth to the park which was once a coal store. Find out more about the waterways’ past around the corner at the London Canal Museum where you can explore the 150 year history of these fascinating London landmarks.

I wish there are more places like this in the metropolitan regions in the United States! When I was in London, I spent a couple of afternoons relaxing on the green, grassy steps by the canal. Being here helps remove yourself from the busy urban lifestyle.
