West London – did you know?
- The Ginger Pig in Marylebone offers contry-like classes, teaching people which meat to buy, how to get the most from it and even how to butcher seasonal game and make sausages. Not quite what you’d expect to learn in the heart of the city.
- West London has an artificial beach where you can while away the summer days. The Ruislip Lido is a 60-acre lake that has facilities for boating and swimming.
- The Attendant in Fitzrovia is a re-purposed and reinvigorated Victorian toilet! The artisan coffee house has tables made out of antique men’s urinals and the walls are covered in while tiles.
- Kensingston Gardens has a statue of the boy who refused to grow up. That’s right, you can take a picnic and spend some time with Peter Pan who’s been immortalised as a statue in the very spot he flies out of Wendy’s window and lands in the much loved children’s story.
- You may consider deer to be animals only found in the countryside, but West London has its fair share of red deer too. A wander through Bushy or Richmond Park is sure to provide the opportunity to spot theses city loving deer – they’re calm and friendly and may even stay still long enough for you to take their picture.
- It’s not just deer that have made their home in West London, the Wetland Centre in Barnes is home to otters, owls, herons and many other cute creatures. The centre holds wildlife-spotting tours on a regular basis for anyone keen to see the animals in their natural habitats.
- Hyde Park has a pet cemetery that dates back all the way to 1881. The tiny graveyard is the final resting place for many a London pet, although they have never been known to return from the grave as in Steven King’s novel – thank goodness!
