One of west London's most attractive aspects is the amount of Royal Parks within the area; there are eight Royal Parks in London and SIX of them are in west London areas.
The Royal Parks has released a video, entitled Park Stories, to promote the gorgeous parks and capture the 5,000 acres of land that are used in unique ways by over 77 million visitors a year.
David Beckham said in British Airways High Life Magazine: "There's nothing better than walking my dog with the kids in Hyde Park. You feel you're in the heart of the greatest city in the world."
To make the most of the amazing Royal Parks London has to offer, we've listed some of the best events going on in each this year.
