3. Relax in the Park

Sometimes you just have to lie down after lunch. Here are few Parks that are ideal for this.

This is a small park, but it’s a good place to:-

  • Hire a desk chair – £1.50 for two hours.
  • Feed the birds (except the Pelicans)

  • Watch the Tourists play with the squirrels.

On our last visit (in the middle of day), we even saw a fox.

Here are a few Videos that set the scene.

  • Some rather lively Coots :-

  • A famous video of the bird life in the Park – NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH:-

  • Another good Pelican sighting:-

  • An even cuter video :-

On a couple of visits we have spotted the ducks, taking rides in the boats. Quite surreal!. Did not manage to catch it on camera unfortunately.
