Get thee to Richmond’s gorgeous Isabella Plantation right away, which is currently at peak pinkness.
You might know Richmond Park for its grassy expanses, woodland bits and wild deer. (See more free places to visit in London.)
But journey through the fields to discover a magical park-within-a-park – it’s pinker than the Plastics on a Wednesday.
There are Hedge Kiddos:
And SMOL BUNS:
So grab a pink-lovin’ pal:
Fix yourself an Insta-perfect picnic:
And get yourself lost!
May is the best month for the psychedelic display of rhododendrons and azaleas, so don’t delay – but there’s plenty more floral action throughout the year for all you late bloomers.
Location: Richmond Park, Kingston-upon-Thames. It’s a 35-minute walk (mostly through the park) from Norbiton station. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: generally early morning ’til dusk, so 7:30am – 8:00pm during summer, we think.
Price: free free free!
