Lesnes Abbey Woods

With so many distinctive features, the park is described as a 'hidden treasure in the heart of suburban London'.

Today you can visit a children’s playground, the beautiful landscaped formal gardens and see a striking mulberry tree reputed to have been planted by King James I who wanted to set up his own English silk industry.
