Central London hasn’t had a new park in over a century, but luckily for Londoners that’s about to change! TfL is the unlikely hero here providing £220 million in funding for London’s Boroughs to improve their green spaces. Camden Council has been awarded £6.7 million to give Alfred Place in Fitzrovia a much needed makeover to create a beautiful new park in the city – in fact the first new park in 100 years! Three cheers for TfL amiright guys?! No? Too far perhaps? Anywaaaay, the funding provided by TfL will help each of the 33 boroughs of London improve the quality of their outdoor space such as cycle ways or pedestrianised roads. So instead of spending your lunch hour walking elbows first into a buzzy Pret you can bring a nice picnic and freeze your baubles off dining al Fresco! Here’s a little preview to what it’s going to look like…

After recently graduating from a degree in History (something she wishes her student loan would become), Annabel resents people who complain about their commutes between zone 1 & 2, as hers goes beyond the Oyster zone. It's worth it, however, to be able to write in a city where bars stay open past 8pm.
