City Rambles by Of Cabbages and Kings

London is an amazing city. Did you know that almost half of its area is made up of green spaces? 33% of this is natural habitat for animals and wildlife and 18% is public open space which includes 3,000 parks. Yes 3,000! That’s more than the area of the city covered by railways and roads combined. It’s easy to think of London as being miles and miles of concrete, but look closer and you see a whole host of parks, fields, woodlands and canals sides. Of Cabbages and Kings have put together a selection of products to inspire adventure, or just a walk to the end of the street. So pick a sunny day and start planning your next city ramble.

This little pocket guide to London’s Green Spaces from Hoxton Mini Press is a selection of the best parks and green spaces London has to offer. With stunning photography by Marco Kesseler and text by Harry Adès. It features places to visit from central London to some of the outer boroughs. A great idea for planning a walk, taking a picnic or just enjoying the fresh air. Detailing 50 locations, you will find a new green space to fall in love with.
