Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

A delightful poster

A delightful poster

Sir Michael Tims poster map

Sir Michael Tims was one of the early members of the Friends of Bushy and Home Parks, and took on the job of designing and creating the artwork on our membership form.

Very often the form is the first contact the public have with us. It sets the tone of who we are and what we do.

Sir Michael has produced a map – more a delightful set of illustrations of animals, flora and buildings in Bushy Park set in a poster format.

There is an example on the wall in the Pheasantry. In view of his great contribution to the Friends we are pleased to tell members and the public how they obtain copies.

NB: Sir Michael himself will handle all the queries about the poster. FBHP will not benefit from the sales.
