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.

Winter Wonderland

This annual Christmas event in Hyde Park raised over £3 million for The Royal Parks, enough to fund the cost of running Richmond Park.

According to press reports, the event attracted more than three million visitors over the course of its six week run. It featured a range of attractions including a 1,600sqm ice rink, the Bavarian Village, Zippos Circus and nightly live bands. After last year’s high visitor numbers and problems of crowd congestion around the attractions, the space for the event was increased to cover most of the area between Hyde Park Corner and Marble Arch. You can see a good aerial view of the event here.
