Camley Street Natural Park, in the heart of London, consists in two unique acres of wild green space. Created from an old coal yard back in 1984, it is an urban and nature reserve run by the London Wildlife Trust.

The visitor can wander through the two acres on a path through the foliage. There is a pond to explore and a visitor centre. The park offers natural habitat for birds, butterflies, amphibians and a rich variety of plant life. Habitats include wetlands, woodland and meadow. It’s great for a day out with the kids, or just a bit of peace and quiet from the bustle of London.

This island hideaway in miniature is a peaceful spot to pause and take in views of the canal and the park. It takes the environment of the park out into the water, and helps people discover the nature and wildlife of the canal. You’ll catch glimpses of birds such as swans and moorhens, and maybe even a kingfisher if you’re lucky.
