Your London in an hour
An hour on a beautiful day in one of the royal parks – I think Kensington Gardens is my favourite, I love to meet my grand and great grandchildren there, for a long walk followed by a well-earned hot chocolate. We all have such fun watching their dogs chasing the squirrels whilst collecting conkers and feeding the ducks.
