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.

Activities for Families and children:

Here is a list of activities FSC London is delivering on behalf of The Royal Parks.

Activities for Families and children:
Activities take place during school holidays, in the evening and at weekends. Suitable for children from 18 months to 16 years, we discover, explore and investigate the Park, finding out all about the natural history. Activities include pond dipping, minibeast hunts and many more. See here for more details.

Courses for adult learners:
Learn about the natural history in the Park through our courses for Adult learners. Open to all, they are suitable for anyone wanting to find out more about wildlife in the Park. The day long courses include birds, trees, moths, wildflowers, orchards, fungi and many more. See here for more details.

Mission: Invertebrate challenges us to understand the grassland invertebrates that call the Royal Parks their home. With expert surveys, citizen science days and habitat improvement projects, Mission: Invertebrate will enable Park Managers to make sure we provide the best possible habitats for our invertebrate friends across the eight Royal Parks of London. Alongside the scientific research, we are providing an exciting programme of free schools and family activities to inspire young and old with the world of invertebrates.

Details of family activities are available here.
