Escape London Tourist Places | Three UK Film Festival


London, Europe’s biggest busiest city.
Visitor’s come here to see the Big Ben, London Eye, Tower Bridge and Buckingham
Palace. However there’s more in this city. There are loads of natural areas to escape
the bustle and famous London tourist attractions and one of them is Epping
Forest. Epping forest has 2400 hectare ancient
woodland with Epping in the north and Forest Gate in the South. These woods
here were in the past managed by the Royal Family.
Queen Elizabeth has her own hunting lodge here on the ground. And those woods
here are perfect for walking, mountain biking and horse riding. To reach Epping Forest take the
overground to Chingford station and from there you will find over 100 lakes and
ponds that offer a great habitat for the flora and fauna here but there’s more to
explore in London. There’s Richmond Park. This magical place
provides peace and tranquillity for millions of Londoners every year. However
it’s also a place that gives a living place for thousands of wildlife species. You can tell we’re in the Deer Park. So
in a deer park the deer go up on their behind legs and they browse the bottom
leaves but they can only reached about two meters. So you know you’re in the
Deer Park where every tree has a bottom that’s cut to about 2 meters and you
can see in a panoramic here that’s a perfect example. So it’s the deer not us
that cut the bottoms of them. So at the moment a lot of the deer, the female deer
are giving birth so they have young with them.
So if we see dog owners and they get approaching deer where we know there are
carves the deer get quite protective at that time of year. So we encourage them
to put their dogs on the lead. I met a young boy with his family and he was
incredibly enthusiastic about all sorts of species of deer. Ranging from deer
that you find in Africa through to elk and moose.
I had to inform him we only had red deer and fellow deer but even the discussion
about that was very interesting and certainly drained my knowledge of all
the deer that we have here in the park. The most famous of them all are the 613 red and fellow deer. However Richmond Park has more to offer. Well
it’s a fantastic place to visit anytime. There’s good parking in the
outskirts there’s fantastic facilities for public transport. We encourage people
to tread lightly and therefore to use public transport or cycle here, when they can. There are places to visit, there’s the ponds, Isabela Plantation is a
magnificent botanical plantation and then just walking around the park and
bumping into the deer left right and center. Although we prefer people to stay
50 meters from the deer as they are wild animals they get a bit defensive
and they prefer not to be fed. Some people try and feed them and that’s
definitely one thing we would discourage if we see people doing it. Hampstead Heath is the third place that
we are visiting and it’s also the most central located place in London to get
some green space. It’s only four miles from the city centre in zone 2. Easy to
reach by overground ,the buses or the London Underground and take then the Northern line. The good thing about Hampstead Heath is
that besides there’s 800 acres of woodlands. There are also some places that you
can visit such as Kenwood House here behind me. This is one of England’s
finest country houses and was remodeled in the 1760s. It’s free to visit you’ll
find some nice paintings such as the one from Rembrand van Rijn and there’s another
hidden gem here in Hampstead Heath that I have to show you now. And this was one of
those secrets I was talking about. Constructed by the Lord Leatherholm,
Pergola Garden. You can imagine that those terraces he constructed in 1906
would have been such a lovely place at that time. However unfortunately due to
the Second World War and due to his death this place became a little bit
abandoned, but that makes it even more magical as well. And when you reach the
end of the park don’t forget to visit Goldern Hill Park as well. There’s a
kids playground and you can see some animals for free as well such as those
lovely monkeys. So next time when you’re alone then and
you’re bored of those kind of tourist attractions don’t forget they’re also
those lovely green spots which could visit here in London.

    Epping Forest and Richmond Park are both cool places to visit. Love the deer! London is so much greener than a lot of people think. Even though it's a pretty touristy destination, Greenwich Park (And Blackheath next to it) also offer loads of green, places to picnic and relax ! Lovely video.

    Wow! I love everything about this video: locations chosen, descriptions, b-roll, editing and music. How come I have never been to Epping Forest? Richmond Park is amazing but it’s so big that I’ve seen only a very small part of it. Hill Gardens and Pergola is probably one of my most favourite places in London ❤️

    Very good editing work at the beginning of your video. Congratulations! Having seen some of your videos, I find this one more lively and fun to watch. I really enjoyed the "Kenwood House", incredible pictures, indoor and outdoor. Thank you so much for sharing 👍

    I loved the part of focusing on nature, most of London videos focusing on the Iconic and modern part

    If the forest is good enough for the queen, it's good enough to me. All the deer in the park was so cute!! Hampstead Heath is lovely, the grounds look so interesting to wander through.

    A very well composed video. I don't know if I could ever be bored in London but for quiet time there is always Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens. I always wondered where the "Battle of Epping Forest" was and now I know. Good Job!

    Ok I never heard of this park and will definitely have to put it on my list when I take my niece to London.

    My favorite nature space…well so far…is the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego California. It was so peaceful there.

    Great video, love the atmosphere created in the film. Amazing close ups of the animals and flowers too. Living in London we will definitely add Epping forest as well as the other two locations to a must list. Thanks for sharing!

    Another one of my favourite things about London – the parks are amazing! Great choices for the video! I used to live right near the Kingston gate of Richmond Park. It's always good to keep your distance from the deer though, I've seen a few tourists get bitten haha!

    I really love the hyperlapse at 0:09 with the darkening sky over Tower Bridge. Very atmospheric! Epping forest looks beautiful. I can't believe I've never heard of it before and I've been to London more times than I can count. Richmond park always reminds me of that viral video of Fenton the dog chasing the deer 😂 You got pretty close to the deer! Were they not scared?
